Americans: On Racial Justice, the World Is Looking to You – Christian Post
I’m looking for the place that I was born,
I’m looking for a way to fix what’s torn,
I’m looking for America.
So goes the lyric from Switchfoot’s Looking For America, a song — which features the black rapper Lecrae — from the band’s latest album “Where the Light Shines Through.”
Those of us who were not “born in the USA” are also looking for America. What happened to the hope and security this nation brought to the world? Where is the banner of freedom and equality she held high and proudly?
Policy considerations aside, imagine our exhilaration from across the world when in 2008 we saw both blacks and whites elect the first African-American president — only America could do it!
