Why?

Why are some people born with rights and others without? 

Why does public opinion focus obsessively on some issues and totally ignore certain others?

How many of you can give me an opinion on Israel and the Palestinians?

And how many of you can tell me who the Bidoon are?

What can you tell me about health and educational opportunities for residents of the Mississippi Delta?

What can you tell me about opportunities for those growing up on reservations in South Dakota?

I don’t know.
