People still play the race card

To the Editor,

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed all men should live in peace, make forgiveness a virtue, remembrance a vice and in the elimination of black-on-white and white-on-black violence.

With hatred omitted, only history and remembrance can make them hate. But King had a dream: “I have a dream that one day in the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”

What is sad is that we still have people in America who are playing the race card, and the saddest part is they walk in the higher echelons of society and both political parties.

The George Floyd verdict produced no solutions — all rhetoric and empty chat.
