after the events in charlottesville (and san antonio) over the weekend and the cowardly response by @realdonaldtrump, i can't help but think of south africa--the land of paradox
it's easy to say that something like apartheid could never happen in america, but in all reality it can, and in subtle ways already is
so it's our responsibility as a nation, especially for me as a white person, to fight against this system of racism that has been put in to place to keep "others" out for the sake of greed and hate.
we are not immune to apartheid. our country has a long history of racism that in many ways has not been addressed and is still festering. it's up to us to have these conversations, stand up for what is right and fight against what is wrong--for the future of freedom, for ALL.
“no one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. people must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” -nelson mandela

So trump and his bad hombres really showed their ass this weekend huh? They are really tryin to moonwalk back into time....and i say trump because these are his people....no doubt about it...ever since the whole birther movement....to the campaign...i think its obvious trump would not be president if it weren't for this core base (white supremacist) ...and they absolutely play a role in this presidency....are all trump supporters these people? No....but all these people are trump supporters... of course this demographic has always been present in america but i think they totally lost their shit once we had our first nonwhite president...so of course lets make the next president the guy that questioned the black guys legitimacy made him show his birth certificate to prove he is an American.....its really crazy town usa now....so many crazy things with this president.... married to an immigrant....hates immigrants.... "champion of the poor white male" yet a billionaire lolol....its like u cant make this shit up lolol just wait until its in the history books in a decade or so....we will all look like dumbasses #charlottesville#virginia#altright#trump#america#news#whitenationalist#politics#thisisandalwayshasbeenamerica#my2cents#cnn#whitehouse#foxnews#history#badhombres
