Unfortunately, we’ve been taken over by narratives by far-left sources (and at times far-right, but that’s not my focus) that can’t be supported with the facts. I believe this is inherently dangerous as we move forward as a democracy and attempting to solve social problems.
I actually thought you were reading my latest October post below instead of the Shaun King article I started the year with. Your comment could have applied to either. In some ways, very little changes. Narratives are still running roughshod over context and empirical evidence.
