We hold these truths to be self-evident, sometimes.

  1. It’s amazing how America has drifted away from the principles it was founded on. And anyone who believes that racism and discrimination don’t exist is lying to himself. Great post.

  2. I don’t disagree with you. Unfortunately, anytime anyone writes anything, that written statement is not just a statement of their position/beliefs/feelings but includes in the underlying subtext a veil of everything that is current in that person’s culture, time, and historical background.

    You’re right. It was written by a bunch of straight, white men, because they were the only ones who could do such a thing in that culture. And yes, discrimination of all kinds is still rampant, but we have come a long way. The fight goes on, and I think/hope that if the country were going through its struggle for independence today, the language would be more inclusive.
