Poll: The Unlikely Hero?

Am I losing my mind or did a white racist assassin from South Carolina accomplish what 1 civil war, 29 Presidents (including Barack Obama), MLK, Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, and scores of activist could not; Did Dylan Roof, inadvertently, kill racism? Ultimately, we all know that “isms” will exist as long as humans exist, but Jim Crow and the so-called “Black Codes” gave American racism a certain look and feel that allowed it flourish as long as it did so in  the dark, under sheets- anywhere where it could be cloaked in deniability or buried in circumstance. Some how Dylan Roof changed all of that; As a result of the shooting, attendance at the Emmanuel A.M.E. Church has skyrocketed with “white” Americans filling the pews of the historically “black” church in an uncommon show of solidarity and respect, and if that isn’t proof enough of something strange happening there’s this issue of the Confederate flag being removed from S. Carolina’s Capitol and government buildings!  Hmm… very interesting… What you think?

 The Poll:

My heart goes out to those who lost their lives in this senseless act of hate and malice, and to the loved ones, and the communities that are left to carry on without them, it is in their honor, memory and spirit that we explore this question.
