It’s pretty easy for a lot of people who are white to talk about how we need to unite and move on now. And it’s easy to make jokes about being uneducated. But here’s the deal: fuck us. On day one this is the shit that came out of the woodwork. This is what voting for Trump has brought on this country. This is the difference between being educated and not. Being educated means you saw that a vote for Trump was a vote for this type of vitriol. It means you thought critically about what the vote stood for and even if Trump was just a boorish lounge act, you know it was deeper and meant that a part of our country took it as an open license to commit acts of hate.
Being uneducated means you didn’t think this was going to happen, or you haven’t been paying attention. Either way, everyone needs to read this link because this is where we are, America. It’s pretty hard to heal the divide when part of the country keeps reopening old wounds.
If you disagree, then you comment below about how we’re going to fix this because I’m out of ideas. In the meantime, PLEASE STAND UP TO THIS TYPE OF SHIT. If you see someone being harassed, do the right thing. Don’t be part of the problem. For fuck’s sake, it is 2016 why the fuck do we even need to have this discussion. What a god damned place we’ve become.
