Karriem justified in his outrage
CVB Board Chair Dewitt Hicks proved that you can take a horse to water, but you can not make him drink. My point is, exposure does not necessarily mean that minds will change. Equality is constantly broadcast by politicians and others. The problem is: Who is actually trying to make a change? You hear all the time from people that they are not racist or they don't have a racist bone in their body. Give me a break. Actions speak louder than words. That statement the CVB chair made (Hicks said, "I'm sick of this racist business in this town. I think a lot of people are tired of it.") He thinks he is tired of it? Think about the people that are suffering because of it. This is another attempt to try and downgrade the word "racist." The word is here and will remain. Stop trying to put another face on it. Let's call it like it is. I can understand why Rep. Karriem was offended for not receiving a call along with the other representatives. It goes back to who was making the call. Sick, tired, walk a mile in our shoes.
