Here is the challenge: You claim America has systemic racism. Then prove it. Show examples of it today. Let’s see the stats not your ex cathedra pronouncement that such exists. Denying systemic racism are the likes of Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell. What do you have to affirm it? Matthew “I’m a racist and white supremacist” Hall? Howard Zinn?
(Capstone Report) Ronald Reagan saw America as a City on a Hill: “I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it….
But in my mind, it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace—a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors, and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still.”
As Henry Kissinger noted Reagan truly viewed America like this and because of it led America to victory in the Cold War. Kissinger said, “America as a shining city on a hill was not a metaphor for Reagan; it actually existed for him because he willed it to exist.”
Contrast this optimistic view of America and its promise with what Al Mohler just said. Mohler views America as racked by unjust structures.
