Racism linked to permanent underclass; solve both together

We have spent decades discussing the issues of race without understanding that the issue of racism is linked to class and we must lift employment opportunities at decent wages so that those on the bottom rung have a chance to get out of the terrible “lock” of a permanent underclass. More even - that they have a chance to take an active part in the political life the nation.

Gays have made progress; battle not yet won

We have made great progress on the issues of gay and lesbian liberation - progress, which as a homosexual who “came out” in 1969, I can measure with amazement. But it is a battle that is not yet won.
