What does your ideal America look like?

Peace & Harmony between all races, jobs for all wanting and willing to work with or without a college degree with the appropriate salary, crime at a very low rate with appropriate action from justice system, parents in control of their kids, respect for the elderly, help where you can to make it a better world instead of criticizing others.

What do you feel is holding us back from reaching your ideal America?


Is equality a core value in your life?
  • Yes
If yes to the question above, what action steps do you take or have you taken to ensure equality in the U.S. and why?

For me and my family I have always encouraged my kids to strive for more, tried to keep them in better neighborhoods, better schools, talk to them about life and things going on in the world around them.

What barriers exist in your life to increasing your involvement?


What role do you think the government should play in race relations?

Deal with discrimination and not sweep it under the rug making excuses or acting like it does not exist.

When you hear black lives matter, what does that mean to you?

We have as much right to eat, sleep, drink, drive a car, work, walk down a street, and anything else people do regardless of the color of or skin without it being thought of as anything else. We have the same rights as anyone else (white america).

A Rose Grew From The Concrete Survey


We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.
