I try to pray for all people. As a black mother I particularly pray for my sons, given the negative slant toward black males in this society. We have come a long way in the U.S. since the Wilmington Ten but we still have a very long way to go. I love my boys, but don't want them to stay in Wilmington. This town is in many ways hostile to black males IRREGARDLESS of their personal behavior. And yet, I still am hopeful; there are many whites who do not see blacks as "thugs". I see many responsible, strong black men in my church and where I work. There is still opportunity to make things better and so many people in Wilmington of all races are trying to do just that.
