In an increasingly global, interconnected, culturally cross-fertilized world, how do we deal with human migration and conflict, especially in a nation of immigrants? What is “White privilege”? “Environmental Racism” and “Environmental Classism?” Are “Reparations” appropriate? Are they different from the “restitution and compensation” appropriated to survivors of the Rosewood, Florida massacre of 1923? Are reparations already being offered and if so, in what forms? How best can we deal with today’s inequities, and can we avoid the violence, invective and protests of recent months?
Nowadays it’s more true to say that protest deteriorates into violence, in Baltimore, in Ferguson, in Europe, Asia, in Africa —when the social system, especially the advantaged classes, shows its/their inability to accommodate the need for change, equal justice and growth.
