As difficult to fathom America is now catching up with the rest of the world with last week’s horrific killings at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Americans barely blinks when mosques are blown up in distant lands or Christians are burned alive as they huddle together seeking safety in war torn nations. Now in this country the carnage has moved from schools building to Bible study classes in the basement of historic Black southern churches.
The Honorable Rev. Clementa Pinckney will be buried tomorrow and eulogized by President Barack Obama. The other eight victims will be buried in the days to come. The services will be huge and no doubt televised. The tears will flow and the ultimate question, “Why?” will be asked.
And in the wake of last week’s massacre remains a demented 21 year old “soldier of death,” who still waves his Confederate flag in his twisted mind. White, young, hateful with a gun. A deadly combination.
Today we will explore the challenges and opportunities that America faces as it wrestles with the contingency of dissonances that just cannot embrace a globally connected multicultural nation.
And we will celebrate the Supreme Court’s ruling today that upholds the Affordable Care Act…otherwise known as Obamacare.

The Civil War ended in 1865, and now more than 150 years later the battle flag of the Southern states is still at the crossroads in South Carolina, Mississippi, Georgia and elsewhere. From license plates to T-shirts to flags, the "stars and bars" remains a hateful symbol of slavery to the Black community.
With the execution of nine innocent African Americans merely attending Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17, 2015, the killer was a 21 year old White supremacist who cherished the Confederate flag.
With racial hatred and gun violence robbing this country of true progress, it’s time to take down the Confederate Flag and park it in a museum where it belongs.
