I John 1:8
The same hearts and mindset that existed during the Jim Crow laws has not "evolved."
Evil is evil and racial evil exists in the twenty-first century among many people of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
If we were to stop living in denial of our own malicious hearts as a "pre-existing condition" we might be eligible to receive the Lord's forgiveness provided for the racist tendencies within us all.
If African-Americans have a destiny in the US of A, we may very well serve as a reminder: a beacon to the world, that the simple acknowledgement of one's propensity for bias, prejudice and racial evil may very well be the by-product of African slavery and racism.
And still we rise...
....to love you and to love ourselves. Come one, come all.
