I wish that everyone I know would speak out against racism–because like it or not–it’s never gone away.
I wish that everyone I know would speak out against anti–Semitism because it’s back (maybe never went away but we just didn’t notice).
I wish that everyone I know would admit that a president pardoning Joe Arpaio is sickening.
I wish that people would have paid attention when the president basically said that there are “good Nazis and good white supremacists.”
There can never be good Nazis or good white supremacists. Never.
I wish people would watch videos on white nationalists because they are sickening. They are people who believe in violence; who believe that minorities should be exterminated.
I know that people will think I’m just being negative.
And that “counter protesting” is the real problem.
I know that people think I shouldn’t focus on the bad but everything great that’s happening–I would love to. (If I could think of great things).
Our country’s in turmoil and I can’t stay silent. I can’t think of too many great things happening in America right now.
Had I been silent I would hope that Charlottesville would have woken me to the horrors that are happening in America, 2017.
Everyone who voted for him or a third party candidate or didn’t vote should seriously think about the damage that’s being inflicted on us.
The rest of us can’t stop thinking about it.
We might not recover from this in my lifetime. Maybe even yours.
And when they come for you don’t say that you weren’t warned or that you didn’t know.
You chose to remain silent.
My heart is breaking.
