who ever said
“fools rush in”
was wrong.
the dumb thing to do
is to wait
too long.
because laters
and eventually’s
aren’t promised
to come….
all we ever really have
is this moment
just one.
and moment
to moment
it’s new
and it’s young….
…..and waiting is death
to what could have begun .

  8. The history of White American racism
  9. Black Codes
  10. Slave patrols
  11. Ku Klux Klan

  14. How white racism grew out of slavery and genocide
  15. How whites still benefit from slavery and genocide
  16. White anti-racism

And so on. No fear of running out of topics: there is more than one a day! I am sure my commenters can come up with tons more, probably some big ones that are not coming to mind at the moment (I did not list slavery, the abolitionist movement, the civil war, Reconstruction or Lincoln since they are, in fact, covered in history class, however poorly).
