It is incomprehensible, or should I say, reprehensible, that while Americans are dying every day, small businesses are shutting their doors forever, unemployment benefits are running out, the country doesn’t have any major ally left; that with all of this going on, the president has time to worry about the NBA and even college football. Seriously, is that the highest level of worry that his mind allows?
The country is in deep trouble, and the administration needs to think about others, and the precepts of our constitutional democracy before there’s nothing left to think about.

Harris ascendency anathema to Republican men
Former Palm Beach County GOP Chairman Sid Dinerstein said of Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris: “My point; she’s an easy target”. Nothing new here. Republican men have been targeting, insulting and showing a dislike of strong independent women for years. It’s not just women Democrats they dislike. They even attacked Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, just because she dared to criticize President Donald Trump. We saw just how spineless and lazy Republican congressmen have been, for more than three years now.
The GOP has become the party of insecure white males like Trump, who believe a woman’s sole purpose is to bolster their fragile egos. Someone needs to tell them women are here to stay and thank God for them.

A clear dearth of education about Black experience in US
Re the recent letter, “Lamborghini shows inequality is a myth”: Is the author of this letter seriously saying that because one professional football player owns a nice car that it is difficult to think about racial inequality and social justice? I didn’t know that one wealthy athlete negated the widespread suffering and inequity borne by the minority community. Never mind the fact that most football players’ careers are relatively short-lived and that a significant portion of players end up with life-altering injuries.
If this individual cannot grasp the magnitude of systemic racism and its deleterious effects on Black Americans, I invite her to participate in a workshop, watch a documentary and/or read at least one of the many well-documented materials on the 400 years of injustice that African-Americans have endured in this country

Don’t criticize Harris for being tough on opponents
For all of the negative responses to former Vice President Joe Biden choosing California Sen. Kamala Harris for vice president on the Democratic ticket, I can only counter in the positive. She has been scathed by some for her attack during the debates on his stance on busing to achieve desegregation. She has also been called out for hard questioning of his approach to women. More power to her. At least she won’t be a puppet like our current vice president.
