A question that I address in my latest PJ Media article linked below.

Throughout history, there have been flash-point moments that have altered the trajectory of society. At the risk of sensationalism, the United States of America may be on the front end of such a moment. Two-hundred plus years ago, the political and societal experiment was launched that resulted in this country. Regardless of an individual’s opinion about the founders of this country, it is difficult to deny their genius. The men and women who founded this countrywere incredible thinkers and exhibited a profound courage as they risked their lives for concepts and theories that no one could know for sure would even work. While their grand experiment ultimately proved fruitful and a blessing to the entire world, the results of Super Tuesday may signal that their experiment is winding down. Or, hopefully, the results of Super Tuesday may signal a coming correction within an out of balance political game, and that grand experiment may take a positive step forward.
On the night of the Ferguson decision, NFL player Benjamin Watson wrote a long Facebook post giving voice to many of his frustrations, fears, and hope as an African-American. That Facebook post was so widely read and shared, that Watson was asked to write a book. He did. And it’s a book about race relations that I believe conservatives and Republicans should read. I read it; was blessed by it; was admonished by it; and wrote a review of it.
