Still Vital, Still Challenging

Just read an article put out by the Anti-Defamation League about various white supremacist reactions to Hurricane Katrina. Pretty disturbing stuff, you can read the article here. Articles like these demonstrate how much work we have yet to do toward helping our fellow Americans to recognize the oneness of humanity and to create a social order that reflects that reality, rather than various racist fantasies that have been created over the last 400 years. The Baha'i International Community issued a wonderful statement to the World Conference on Racism that took place in Durban South Africa in 2001 that is a nice antidote to the sad and bizarre statements people made in the ADL article.
Read both and let me know what you think.
