3. That's an interesting question - I don't think it will go away

but at the same time, many won't stop struggling against racism and making a better world. Political debates and our victories & defeats on the left are part of a constant struggle. I have an existential view. Sisyphus never got that rock entirely over the hill. Maybe, as Camus suggested, he was happy because he enjoyed the struggle. You meet some amazing people along the way. You get to laugh and cry with them. Martin Luther King looked over that mountaintop. What he saw was beautiful. When I'm down, I look over it too. I try and share that view with friends. It's a spectacularly beautiful sight to behold. My friends and acquaintances, women and men, black and white and all shades, straight and gay - we love that view, and share it as much as possible!
