communism/terrorism — “the Negro”/”the Immigrant”

This immigration issue is our times’ civil rights issue. In the 60s communism and “the Negro” confronted the white majority; in this new decade it is terrorism and “the Immigrant.” An enemy without and one within. One vague, the other flesh and blood. We are caught in a pincers—whoever we mean by we. We found then and find now that it is difficult to think rationally. Then and now we must make extra efforts to think—together. The road leads us through learning to simultaneously hold opposites—we and they—in our minds and hearts.
