The makeup of the crowds in Charleston in response to this horrific terrorist attack shows the America can and will defeat racism. Folks of all colors, all races, all ethnicities, all sexual orientations and all religions came together in solidarity. That is the America we found in the small print of the founding documents and have been building slowly over the last 150 years.
Now is not the time to stop. It is the time to push through. We may not be able to wipe out the forces of hate in this country but we can marginalize them to the point they don’t matter. We must force them even deeper into the shadows. And when racism raises its head, we should chop it off .
Quick, fast and in a hurry.
Good on you, Charleston. I can’t wait to be able to return to your state. Just as soon as you…
Take It Down!
