This is what our great country has descended to – a nation of angry white people who voted more than the brown and black people.

First Read The Power of an Education Don Wilson, CEO, DRW Holdings, this week’s guest editor When it comes to donating time and financial resources, I’ve always been most interested in projects that truly have a long-term impact on improving the community where we live and work, reducing future poverty and creating sustainable opportunity.
