Political Differences

It is really interesting when contrasting Aretha's quest for civil right and the current quest for far more racial equality. In her day, in her voice, she paved the road of hope, dreams, and the potential for mutual prosperity. Today's racial leaders flaunt hate and victimization. All ethic backgrounds should take note, Aretha's methodology was far more successful then the militarization of low income neighborhoods. I will admit, I am a while male with an engineering degree not breaking any stereotype there, but I see the possibility for kids of any color to prosper and that is why I give lectures and seminars to groups all over the southwest US - basically anyone that wants to hear me. I feel, I have seen - societies rise. They just have to want it as much as I want it for them.
