Asserts the moderate-conservative Republican: "Peace, making it and keeping it, constitutes the one ingredient the absence of which no civilization can withstand. Black culture, especially its lower income end, is awash in societal noise: gunfire; raised voices; loud music and sirens blaring drown out contemplation and serenity. Extending this deficit to the outside community means a combative posture where crime and rudeness are considered today’s sad equivalent of civil rights activism. Those who’ve yet to make peace with America content themselves to blame White Conservatives for all our ills."
He continues his commentary: "Making Peace With America for me means operating as an individual free of the limitations of a captive past. As such, I take Americans (color irrelevant) on a case-by-case basis as individuals, instead of tentacles from some collective. [I]t also means I don’t pull to my proverbial bosom human vipers I call chocolate Klansmen (urban thugs); sun tanned socialists (Black liberal mouthpieces; in office & out) and other enemies because of ethnicity."
More from Mr. Enzi: "Black liberals who run the phrase, 'Black liberation' into the ground should realize, liberation in its truest form means making peace with America. If Congressman John Lewis, a liberal icon who was savagely beaten by police throughout his 1960s civil rights career, can make peace with America, what’s younger Blacks' excuse today? Absent peace, our community and the country surrounding it falls from within. That doesn’t seem very liberating to me."
