LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: D.C. Sorely in Need of Repair

Washington is broken and Chocolate City is not sweetening the lives of Americans anymore. The most gorgeous governmental residence in the nation is well taken care of but around the corner from the White House we can see what is burdening America. We have a record-high amount of broken homes, an education system that is underfunded, the highest amount of public debt in American history and we can’t get any meaningful legislation passed because of our Capitol’s congestion. We can’t get any invigorating initiatives to rebuild ripped up families, support schools, and retire our debt for good. All our politicians in Washington want to do is make social capital. America isn’t just Entertainment magazine or the E! Network. Our human capital’s opportunities to ripen have more catch-22s than Mike Nichol’s movie. The ceiling has cried uncle and the Uncle Sam we once trusted is dawdling democracy in America. Virginia and Maryland have had the lowest ratio of Black statewide elected officials in the South compared to what they had during Reconstruction. Let’s get our country back in order in the ebullient spirit it has for being so young.

Jordan Thomas Cooper is a 2015 graduate of the University of South Carolina and is the first Black to serve in both the South Carolina governor’s and lieutenant governor’s office as an aide and the first Black to serve in the Inspector General’s Office in the state.
