The heart of the issue

America to Me at the Lake Theatre, Aug. 13, was thought-provoking but I'm fearful that it misses the heart of the issue. Namely, the extent to which African Americans are viewed and considered as worthy humans, worthy of time, worthy of expense, and most important, worthy of nurturing. The word that struck throughout the viewing was organic. The relationships (especially males) seemed forced and as the assistant principal noted, these kids are not being accepted wholeheartedly. It only speaks to the enormity of the issue, and not just achievement gaps.
