The American Dream belongs to…

On November 7th, 2012, the day after Barack Obama’s reelection, a cowardly, anonymous writer posted some racist vitriol. Not unusual in America. These particular words have circulated the internet since that day, attributed to various people like Franklin Graham. I’M EMBARRASSED TO SAY THAT ONE OF MY EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS SENT THEM TO ME A FEW DAYS AGO. IT IS HIS RESPONSE TO THE POSITIVE CHANGES AND HOPE RIPPLING THROUGH OUR NATION. I was both pissed off and acutely aware that any reply to my white relative would fall on deaf ears. So, what did I do? I framed them and highlighted a better message in yellow!
