A Meditation on Prophets

“We know that the roots of systemic racism run all through our hillsides.  We don’t like to look at how bad it really is, because that would turn the ground we stand on into mush.  Wrong attitudes about what we can own, who we can keep at a distance and what is owed us keep the ground from shifting too badly.  But what do we lose by keeping those particular hillsides in place?”
