United for Kindness

One of our students was called a “nigger” in the Fred Meyer parking lot yesterday. This is not okay. I know my friends who are Republican do not like bigotry any more than I do. Whatever candidate you voted for – whatever party you align with – we need to come together right now and stand up for our brothers and sisters. We need to stand united for kindness.

  1. They appear to be coming out en force. It’s as if there are no more rules. And it not just African-Americans. Heard a story locally about a man of Asian descent being yelled at while he pumped gas, and a young man of 17 of Mexican descent being told to be read to be deported soon. Wtf is going on?

    • I think people might feel that they have permission now to be mean and hateful. I think bigotry has now become “normalized” – at least in the minds of some folks. But I also believe that bigotry and hatred will self-destruct. There are a lot of really good people in the United States – and I’m counting on the good people to join together and do the right thing.
