Is there any hope for race relations in the USA?

Wikipedia's main page asked the question, "Did you know... that in his book A More Perfect Union: Advancing New American Rights, U.S. Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. proposed eight constitutional amendments?" I didn't know this, so I clicked on A More Perfect Union: Advancing New American Rights and saw that JJ, Jr. wants
the right to public education of equal high quality;
the right to health care of equal high quality;
equal rights for women;
the right to decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing;
the right to a clean, safe and sustainable environment;
the right . . . to full employment and balanced economic growth;
the explicit fundamental right of citizens to vote; and
an amendment regarding taxing the people of the United States progressively.

Can anyone say "Nanny State." One of the references was for an article titled U.S. URGED TO DISCUSS SLAVERY AT WAR SITES in which JJ, Jr. basically mandates to the Dept. of the Interior that the focus of all Civil War sites should be on slavery rather than the military or political facts of what occurred at the site.

It is just astounding to me the insanity that this man's lust for power has driven him to. The implications of his proposals would be staggeringly bad for the people of the United States and would be of benefit only to a select few politicians and their cronies. Of course, all of his programs need to be run by individuals who "think correctly." God forbid that anyone should have to take personal responsibility for their life and actions.
