Institutional Racism in Denver
The chief of police in Denver is a black man. The mayor of Denver is a black man. He is not the first black mayor of Denver. The president of our country is black. So is the attorney general. It should be encouraging to black youths that there are opportunities for high office regardless of race. What is so unfair about these examples of successful black leaders is that it has become much more difficult to make race an excuse for lack of achievement.
