The narrative has been lost. It was never about the flag or patriotism. It was about social injustice and police brutality. But the fact is that the topic makes people uncomfortable, and no one likes to be uncomfortable; they rather close their eyes or change the narrative than confront the ugly truth and look for ways to improve it. But since our current President has decided to change the narrative, because social injustice is an issue he appears to be squarely on the wrong side of the debate on, and make this about patriotism, I thought I remind him of the words of James Baldwin. If he can somehow grasp the meaning of Baldwin’s words, then maybe he will understand what it means to be a patriot.
