“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”—Abraham Lincoln.
History has proven that when African Americans seek equality in America they are often met with intimidation, bombings of their neighborhoods, and murders of the innocent. The Third Verse explores whether the United States of America would be pulled apart at the seams when African Americans sit as equals to their White counterparts. Are Americans strong enough to stand together, or will institutionalized racism be the downfall the American Republic? Anthony Marks and President Lawrence Edison seek to resolve these questions… to save the soul of America.
Their task becomes much more difficult when the invading forces of The People’s Republic of China tips the balance of power in favor of African Americans. China offers African Americans the opportunity of a lifetime… to finally stand as equals. Will they accept? Will Tony and Law save America? Or is history ordained to repeat itself. Switching Day is just the first step.
Verse critiques America’s racial divisiveness, while celebrating the spectacular depth of our undeniable unity as diverse Americans.
