Why?




The violence the country saw in VA, today was sickening. It scares me. One reason I am staying in California, not that it is all rosy here. Maybe in some parts, there is white supremacy, I don't know. I do know, that the federal prisons, have it. They go in and have to align themselves with a group for protection. I guess the only one for white people is the white supremacy groups. I remember seeing a mugshot here in California, of a guy with a swastika tattooed on his forehead, and no it wasn't Charley Manson.

I have never seen a confederate flag flying in California. Never! People won't stand for it around here. Someone would say something or it would get ripped down. As for the Confederate statues - being torn down. Well, having never lived in the south I cannot relate as to why they still hang on to their racist Confederate heroes. They lost the war -

I feel for the southern blacks, who have to live and see that crap, all the time. Imagine how that would make you feel?  It would be infuriating.

I know it almost sounds silly, but why can't people get along? Why can't we just accept people and their differences? Why can't we just stop it?  Someone has to be the first, to just not argue - to refuse to "bite." It's hopeless, really and that is how I feel today. Sad and hopeless.
