This past week, Angela and I moved into a new home in Garland, Texas, and we ain’t moving anymore. My wife of 29 years and I paused to look out the expanse that is our backyard. We are so very blessed. However, all we hear about today is redistributing prosperity, blessings from others. There are some even touting reparations for slavery – abject folly. As a proud American black man, I am offended by this soft bigotry of low expectations. Today, we hear more people talking about what is wrong with America, or why some even hate this great country. It seems to be more popular to voice and express sentiments of angst against America or take a knee at the playing of our National Anthem, than to share your affections for the “land of the free.”
