the flawed scales of justice


I have been spending a lot of time thinking and reading about the imbalances in the way that justice is served in this country, the US, especially those imbalances based on race. I hope to make the time soon to write more about this, because my conscience is chiding me for my apparent silence over the recent egregious examples of racial injustice and glaring evidence of systemic racism in the US. Far from being unconcerned, I am trying not to be overwhelmed. There is too much to say. I find myself so grateful that I have friends who are outspoken in their anger over recent current events and who have shared their words and links to the words of others. There is so very much to be angry about, and so much work to be done.

  1. I too have been wanting to post something, but it all seems to be coming out on Facebook this time, instead. I’ve been thinking of you (remembering seeing you a year ago!). Hope all is as well as can be.

  2. I share your sentiment. Lady Liberty grieves for so many injustices.
