Now we all know that promises made don’t always equal promises kept. But even presidents like John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and Barack Obama — whom history has granted kind legacies on race — never explicitly tasked the entire U.S. government with chipping away at systemic racism.
Exactly. It does show a good step, by actually stating the problem. You are right. Trumpism is not over, it lives on because racism has always been part of hte framework of American society. Thanks so much for writing this.
