Eloquent, raw, open…and, ironically, a hopeful offering that makes me truly proud to be an American.

    What I appreciate most about this is Baratunde's vulnerability. He is angry but most as he says himself hurt and humiliated (and I think justifiably so) that in the year 2011 some of us are still required to verify our status as free American's; some are assumed illegal until proven legal, some are assumed to be criminals until proven innocent, some are assumed to be a terrorist, all on the basis of race and ethnicity. The most powerful thing about this is simply to talk about how that feels.

      "In the beginning there was the word", what you talk about propagates. Let's talk about freedom and equality without re-enforcing the negative aspects of history. Let history die the miserable death it created for itself. It will not be missed.
