A Confusing World
When I was interviewing Rev. Gregory Armstrong for our article on St. Paul AME Church, when we talked about the confusion in the world, he said, “Part of the question that I ask is, ‘What is a Democrat? What is a Republican?’ I kind of used to know that. But now that has changed. It raises the question that it is hard to delineate who is who and what is what.”
God knows I can relate.
I grew up in a Milwaukee suburb called Elm Grove. It was a small town that became a Milwaukee suburb complete with fine homes after World War II. I wonder how many of the homeowners there could take advantage of the GI Bill that offered low mortgage-rate loans for veterans — that is if you were a Euro-American veteran. There weren’t too many Black folk living in Elm Grove.
