"Free at last!" didn't last after Dr. King's 1963 speech, and although racism may have seemed on the wane for a while, it has always been there, simmering to a large extent beneath the surface pending a spark to ignite it. Donald Trump has ignited that spark, and must be defeated because another four years may take decades to undo. Our better angels have seldom been in greater danger of losing their wings.
