They say a picture is worth a thousand words..
what does this one say?
Here is a black Charlottesville police officer, protecting the 1st Amendment rights of a group of people who would just as soon like to put a bullet in his head because of his skin color
who has this kind of time to hate?..and why?
Virginia, my home, is a beautiful, diverse place..from the Atlantic Ocean in the east, to the Blue Ridge Mountains in the west, full of American history..and tragedy..home to over 80 different Confederate monuments, most placed in various city parks in the 1920's..and let's be honest, not to honor anyone, but to intimidate and keep in force the Jim Crowe laws, nowhere else in the entire world, does any country have monuments to their losing armies
history cannot and should not be simply erased, lest we forget..my belief as someone who drives past several every day is to remove them from public view and place them in a museum to preserve their history, those who wish to view them can still do so, but they are no longer a poke in the eye to blacks and other minorities, as they were intended to be at the time
cannot we all be proud of our heritage without hating others for theirs?..most of the people you saw rioting on the news, weren't even from Charlottesville, but were bussed in
dogs, cats, cows and horses all come in different colors..surprise, so do people!..and prejudice is a learned trait, we aren't born with that
a local news station is looking for input as to how we can come together as a nation and reduce the hate and violence..
my suggestion..stop teaching hate to your children
I realize that I may be rambling, but its really hard for me to get my head around this shit..anyone else with some insight?
