A Manmade Hurricane

Shortly before Hurricane Irma hit, I was in Charleston, South Carolina. Stores were boarding up and people who lived in the lower areas of SC were fleeing. I had a conversation with a very interesting woman about the challenges of raising children. Her sons were in their twenties; our daughter is 12. We had different challenges. She worried about her sons’ interaction with the police and, when they were young, how to explain things like the KKK.

I kept thinking about the confluence of these events and wrote a commentary which was published by MinnPost:  Natural hurricanes bring humane responses. But how do we deal with the manmade hurricane of racial bigotry?
