Frost covers the dead garden and flowers. In their houses, peasants dream. I sit and watch these gray boxes. Hidden seeds of the future are sleeping. Rick Harrison (translation of the original from the artificial language UNI) The paradox of race in America is that our common destiny is more pronounced and imperiled precisely when our divisions are deeper … There is no escape from our interracial interdependence, yet our enforced racial hierarchy dooms us as a nation—the unmaking of any democratic order. Cornel West (2001, 9) Dear George Bush: I remember racial profiling, and how all of these other constitutional violations have been used for centuries, especially against the African-American community, and that minority citizens and immigrants have been subject to some of the grossest infringements of civil liberties—the two words that uphold the very power of democracy—for a very long time. Kristin Prevallet.
