Whether you believe that there is still racism in our country or not, as Americans wanting to progress toward unity in this country, don't you agree we should judge people by the content of their character rather than by the color of their skin?

Better yet, let's not judge each other at all, but encourage and support each other. We are communities uniting with the strength of our values and virtues, We, who believe in standing together as Americans, no matter what color, gender, size, nationality, can overcome the minority of people who, out of prejudice and fear, want to divide America through teaching Critical Race Theory.

We the American people – black, white, man, woman, small, tall, and everything in between – stand together for the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that this country was founded on and stand against divisive principles that say an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist or oppressive and that an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex.

This divisive language will undo decades of civil rights progress made for mankind. Do not allow them to teach our young people to buy into Critical Race Theory. It will turn the United States of America into the Divided States of America. Since when do we make a country better by seeking to divide us by the color of our skin?

Start today by uniting with others in your community. Be known for your love and encouragement, for your strength of character. Have a conversation with your local educators and representatives and especially with youth. Ask them what they believe will create unity in this country? Does canceling and boycotting someone because they have a different belief create a more unified country? Does labeling people based on the color or their skin create a better country? Let's start a respectful conversation today, with the goal of saving the “United” in our beloved United States of America.
