Tolerance in East Lansing took a hit yesterday as my John James yard sign was deliberately bent over.
We have an historic opportunity in Michigan to elect our state’s first African American US Senator! This is so important. The symbolism of an African American representing Michigan—home of the infamous Detroit riots—cannot be denied.
For many in East Lansing voting for an African American republican for high office will be a litmus test of the depth of their convictions for racial equality and social justice. No one ever said these fights would be easy or the choices involved simple.
