If life is a fox hunt, what role do you play?
Are you the Master: conductor of the Hunt; selecting and inviting only those who are like you.
Are you the Huntsman: in charge of controlling the hounds but still only second in command.
Are you a Hound: you have no voice so are controlled and kept as a pack by the Huntsman’s voice; your only job is to blindly chase down and kill the fox.
Are you a Rider: only in the hunt because someone has allowed you in; you and the other Riders are indistinguishable from each other.
Are you the Fox: chased by Riders and Hounds; guilty of nothing but existing.
Does race control your role? Does wealth change your role? What role do you play? America. Prelude to After the Hunt.
