Excellent piece sir. I am not an American and had never lived n USA. But I can understand your sentiments. The entire reflection is applicable all over the world. We in India have similar problems with the caste system. I agree with you the so called upper castes here behave exactly like the man in the top of the mountain. All of us have to first accept we are human beings first and all other things come later. As Human Beings all of us are equal and we should treat that way.
