So well stated. I am so furious over what is happening I can hardly get the right words down. But I agree with everything you said and for the record I am on your side. I am against racism and all other kinds of bigotry. When I heard that shit can interview with Steve King, I ignited. I don’t pretend to know the score from your perspective, but I can promise you, I am not quiet and I am not tolerant of small minded individuals who share King’s beliefs. I also know there are a lot of scumbags who do share those beliefs and they are dangerous. But I refuse to think we can’t push them back in their crappy little holes. I will continue to fight.
Thank you for a well written essay. Honest and emotional and absolutely true.
