Hack #6

We have been discussing the 1960s and especially the Civil Rights movement in small and large lecture for several weeks. History seems to be repeating itself over 50 years later in 2015 and it is really rather sad. It just comes to show that legislation does not completely solve a problem and that it needs to be enforced in reality. All of the protests and riots that have been occurring throughout the country, and especially recently in Ferguson and Baltimore, tell us that nothing has changed in the last half century and begs the question: When will it all change? When will racism end? When will stereotypes be erased? It needs to happen now and so that this country that we so proudly call the Land of the Free will stop sounding so hypocritical.
