This has been one of the biggest weeks for Civil Rights the United States has seen in a long time. Confederate flags are being pulled down with even orders from governors to remove them from State Capitols, and are getting banned from NASCAR and removed from major retailers, the Affordable Care Act has been upheld by the Supreme Court, and more importantly, so has same-sex marriage!
This is a great week for America, and one that gives me a shred of hope in a country who from Ferguson to Baltimore, Charleston and New York, hasn't given me much. That said, this is not a clean victory, and the Conservative right and dissenting Justices haven't been quiet about their discontent, and that's something I wish to address, here and now.
