The Paradoxical Hunt for Reasonable Love in an Unreasonable World
Posted on March 20, 2014
We live in a society that has come to be dominated by reason. We are encouraged to make the logical choice. We try to speak with political correctness. We judge through stereotypes first. We racially profile with laws like “Stop and Frisk” and Arizona’s SB1070. We do these things because they are reasonable, right?
Friend to the blog, Kiese Laymon, makes a case for a different outlook on people and relationships in his article for ColorLines. In the article, Laymon thoughtfully and masterfully shows how we live in an unreasonable world cloaked in reasonable assumptions and conclusions. And what better case to elucidate his point than the murder of Trayvon Martin and thesubsequent trial.
