With the things that have happened this year, I am now forced to re-evaluate how I see myself and my place in the world.
At a Nazi rally, (let’s just call them Nazis, OK? They’re wearing swastikas and everything) in Charlottesville, a domestic terrorist (Yes, even though he’s not brown, shocking, I know.) plowed through a crowd of non-violent protesters, killing one, and injuring many others.
It’s a completely tragic, senseless act of evil. I’ll have words with anyone who says otherwise.
And what does our president have to say? (from his 15 day golfing vacation that isn’t a vacation) Trump condemned “this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.” Any mention of racism or white supremacy was conspicuously absent.
He also ignored a reporter’s question asking what he has to say to white nationalists who support him, and commit acts of violence.
These Nazis feel empowered by his lack of condemnation over their evil ways.
So that leaves me, a brown man in a country where the white man is increasingly willing to commit horrific deeds to minorities.
Well, we have the eclipse coming up soon, fingers crossed for a zombie apocalypse.
