Whitish Lives Matter | Literate Ape 2067

Dateline: Old Chicago, 2067

It’s been 25 years since that magic year of 2042 where, as predicted, whites were no longer the majority in the Reorganized States of America. Everything went as the social scientists predicted. Now, there are far more People of Color in the country. There are now far more People of Color in power throughout the country.

As I sit here in the heart of one of the biggest cities in the world and contemplate the very idea of that number of human beings - of all stripes, colors, races, creeds - it's a bit staggering.  The concept of seven billion people is kind of abstract and potentially awful/amazing.
