    This news is “nice” but still African Americans have a long, long way to go and I honestly believe ‘we’ will not get there on this side. Why? The conflict between blacks and whites is rooted in patriarchal history and founded on the Anglo American (which means whites believe this in there country) they were taught that dating back to 1300’s and that’s a good feeling to them and just like the conflict between Arab and Israeli, it will never die.
