How Do We Make America Great Again? #OneRaceTheHumanRace

With all the drama in the news, from all the shootings, to bombings and to two, as Chris Jericho would say, “Stupid Idiots” battling it out to see who is going to be the next President of the US, it’s time for us to look at ourselves and see how far we have changed.  It seems that people are no longer proud to be an American.  That we are more divided then ever.  What is the cause of this?  Is it the large gap between the poor and the rich?  Is it the fact that we can no longer trust our government?  I felt that this is a perfect time to once again make this video go viral.  From the HBO show the Newsroom comes one of the most influential scenes in TV history.  It illustrates how dumb we have become as Americans thinking that we are great because we have “Freedom”.  Do we have freedom, are we actually free?  How can we call ourselves free when every night on the news you see people being arrested for protesting, or videos of police officers abusing their power.  Or seeing one of our future presidents lie to millions of Americans.  I’m not a Trump supporter nor I am a Clinton supporter.  What I am is a concerned citizen asking, no begging you to look at what we can do as one race, the human race to change not just the United States but the world and make us be united as one.  I know this shit ain’t easy and it sure as hell won’t happen overnight.  We can either keep fighting each other because of the color of our skin or cut the playground bullshit out and reach out to each other, hand in hand.  We need to break down the barriers that we ourselves have put up.  We need to stop putting the blame on something or someone and admit our mistakes and move the fuck on.  We take one step forward but two steps back.  That’s not how we evolve.  We used to be a beacon for the sick and the poor.  That Statue of Liberty sits in the harbor waiting to welcome all people of all races yet we punish our poor and sick by either putting them in jail or a hospital or just completely forgetting about them.  We don’t care about immigrants, who this country was built on the back of who we all.  We technically are all immigrants or have some ancestral relationship to someone who immigrated.  Except for the Native Americans who are really the only ones who have a right to complain.  United we stand or divided we fall and the sad part is we are falling down faster and faster everyday.  Maybe this video can make a difference.  Take a look below and I would love to hear your thoughts on this.  Together we can make a difference and we can change.  I still believe in the American dream, do you?
