    Only God’s kingdom or heavenly government (Daniel 2:44) will soon put an end to hatred, prejudice, racism and divisive nationalism to bring about complete brotherhood of man on earth.

    It’s so obvious that man cannot accomplish that on his own, but peace among all peoples will become a reality (Psalm 37:10,11) since all wicked ones will no longer exist.

    This article has said absolutely nothing, when, given the topic, it could have said plenty.

    People who have never been to the Missouri campus — meaning nearly all of America, black or white — need to hear specifics…..hard, clear specifics.

    They need to hear more of what you mean when you imply the campus is somehow an awful atmosphere for black students.

    You need to stop talking in vague generalities and explain the whole thing or at least part of it.

    Otherwise, it looks like a con game, where you’re riding the gravy train of white guilt over undeniable injustices from the past.

    Tell us specifics or you’re wasting your time. Without specifics, there is no remedy. The cynical side of me says that’s exactly the point. You don’t want remedies. You want to wage an endless war of attrition against the American system of liberal democracy.

    Prove I’m wrong by getting into specifics that a liberal democracy like ours can remedy.
