You won’t be hearing from me for a while. My original plan was to thoroughly explore the issue of racism, and once that effort was complete, go to work on a novel that has been calling me for years. I decided it best to proceed directly to the fiction.
If you are interested in a critical examination of Critical Race Theory and other woke-related issues, I highly recommend, Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America, by John McWhorter.
Racism will not change until the past is not carried with us as, if it were our skin. People do not make an effort to merge. JMO
