Reflections Of America’s Racial History


It’s ever ended. It’s never been done away with. It was dormant …. and it’s rearing its ugly head!!

Thought Provoking Perspectives

The world in which we live is full of danger, which means there is much evil and many amoral people intent on your demise. We see this in the multitudes of unarmed black people killed at the hands of the law. When I journey back in time to recall history, I am reminded of a time when slave catchers roamed the nation, under cover of law, to hold people of color in bondage. Today, the same thing is happening undercover law by the police. Not to mention the 21st Century version of slavery – prisons and jails.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. We re-watched Mississippi Burning last night. It had been many years since the last time. Sadly, it looks like not enough has changed since this ugly dark part of our history. What has to happen to wake us all up? It is way past time to get on with our future and end and bury our hateful, racist, ugly past. We are all Americans and we need to accept this and love each other for our beautiful differences. My own racial make-up is so blended I could be a rainbow. I am proud of all of my ancestors, they make me who I am.
