Through Rose Colored Glasses: The Duality of America, Seen Through Post-Racial Eyes’ is a chronology of our publicized and not-so-publicized American story from the perspective of one that sees unity becoming our dominant nature and this nation living up to its true creed, “that all men are created equal”.
We begin with the birth of a nation and its drive for sovereignty free of the tyranny of the old world methods of doing things. Yet while building this republic to the democracy it became, the founders and their successors professed one thing but lived absolutely another. The migrant settlers left from and broke away from motherlands that were oppressive and overbearing in a quest to be free, while at the same time, instituted a legacy of forced servitude called slavery that would haunt them for centuries.
We progress through many attempts to get right grievous errors initiated in its infancy and how they failed miserably doing this in relation to the indigenous natives already here when they arrived and the ones that were brought here in slave ships from African lands. America possessed dual personalities that manifested themselves simultaneously while growing to develop into one identity that it wanted to portray to the world.
We follow this through our present day circumstances and see the effects of this dual nature in relation to how we deal with each other. We also look at how we can find solutions to get us to that brighter tomorrow that we know America can be in a society based on true character and not false stereotypes.
