On paper, America is the world leader in racial justice.
In practice, we have a long way to go.
It's not that black people lack creativity, intelligence, or industriousness. Black musicians, politicians, scholars, inventors, entrepreneurs, and artists have altered the course of history.
The problem is systemic and deleterious.
Implicit bias and lack of opportunity hold black people back. In turn, this holds us all back.
Imagine what our cultural, technological, and economic output would look like if every black person had a fair chance. It's our responsibility—every one of us—to make this a reality.
The future of America depends on it.
