With Biden’s inauguration only a couple of days away, the extent of the revolting Capitol riot is revealing itself via more newly released videos and first-hand accounts. If there is a bright spot in the coming days, aside from Biden being sworn in and Trump heading out of town, is that hours after being sworn in, Biden will roll back many of the atrocities that will forever stamp this presidency as the worst in the entirety of US history. Yet, inequities, of all types, remain and Biden’s job will not be easy. But if ever there was a person who came at the right time and is the right person for the job at hand, it’s Biden. He will have a host of issues to deal with: What will he do with Trump allies found to be behind the rally by Associated Press?; How will he narrow the employment gap between whites and Latinos?; and What will be done about Spanish-language radio shows that did their part in inciting misinformation? There are a lot of issues but there are also good things happening around us too. We just have to remember that we’re all in this together. Go beyond the headlines…
