The election of competent, compassionate, capable, educated, articulate, caring, clever, good-looking, well-spoken BLACK man scared the hell out of racists. How could they look down on Black people if they saw an example of one who deserved to be admired every day. So they all crawled out from under the rocks and supported a man who was the complete opposite. Loathsome, incompetent, self-centered, immoral, dishonest, ignorant and downright vile in order to prove white people are better than Black people.
That went so wrong that they are now in hysterics, trying everything they can to keep brown people from voting . . .to keep all people from voting, really. . .in order to live in an authoritarian government that upholds racism as its baseline principle.
I just hope all those old racists die off, killed by their own ignorance, so a new generation can take up the fight for equality that I thought we were close to winning when I was young. We have made great leaps forward but we have a long, long, LONG way to go.
So, not a bleeding heart liberal but I am tired of fighting this same battle over and over and over liberal and want to take no prisoners so that kindness, compassion, equality and decency FINALLY rule in a country where voting is encouraged and everyone lives their best life.
