American Flag Stands for Freedom, Not Racism

Star Parker, Townhall

Freedom is not about being born into a perfect world. Freedom is about being born into a world where you have the power to fix things. America has a painful history on race. But America is comprised of many individual Americans, and in a free country, everyone cannot be painted with the same brush. The truth and power of those principles of freedom is what made us and makes us great, despite the presence of evil. Let's not make the grave error of thinking that what needs to be eliminated are the principles rather than the evil. Technology and the internet give us unprecedented power to seek truth. America's youth should be using these tools to look for it, to use their own power to think for themselves, not be seduced by the distortions of confused demagogues.
