It’s not a bad “dividedness” when a majority stands against racism, bigotry & intolerance. It’s actually a sign of hope. There is no negotiation to be had, no middle point to be found, no concessions to be made between what is just plain right and what is clearly wrong & evil. But talking about “dividedness” alone only obscures the true illness that afflicts us as a nation –it’s self-deceiving, self-serving, and just too convenient.
