My heart is broken by the tragic and hateful events in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend as white supremacists and protesters clashed leaving one dead and dozens seriously injured.
I was in high school during the civil rights demonstrations and race riots across the United States. It seems we’ve made little progress—maybe because we’re not dealing with the root issues. NFL running back Benjamin Watson—who is black—believes, “It’s not a skin problem; it a sin problem.”
