Charlottesville

I’ve not got the vocabulary for this much disgrace. I’ve been thinking a lot about how hate is something that is taught.

In case I’m not being clear: I don’t like bullies, hatefulness masquerading as history, or white supremacy. I have benefitted from a social system that is set in my favor solely because of what I look like. This same system is set against many others solely because of what they look like. This is not right, or just, or kind. None of us are in control of how we are made – we are only in control of how we act and treat others. Do good. Be good. Show up if you have the chance.

    Right there with you.

    The United States has already fought in one World War (and a civil one) against this opprobrious ideology. You’d think we’d have all have learned something already.
