This was a horrible week as Heather Heyer lost her life protesting AGAINST hate and racism. America is far from being the racist-free Nation that many had wrongly assumed we were. And to add fuel to the fire the sitting President of America refused to condone the hate and racist behavior of the KKK, neo-nazi, and white nationalist men and women. #45 went so far as to state there are “good” KKK, neo-nazi and white nationalist, just like there are good people that protest against hate and racism.
I am still trying to wrap my mind around #45’s statement of there being good people who hate me because I am Black; there being good people who hate Jews; and good people who hate anything that is not “pure white”. America is the most diverse Nation in the world and for so many hateful individuals to still reside here just boggles my mind.
Another area that I am still confused is the 35% solid base of support that #45 still maintains. His policies are detrimental to the health and well-being to ALL middle to low income Americans. And yet he still has their support and I just cannot figure out why. His proposed budget cuts to the bone to services that middle to low income Americans have come to depend or survive on. The current President is opposed to a Federal minimum wage of $15 per hour; he is opposed to health care for ALL Americans; and he has expressed support for traitors of America.
I am tired, discouraged, numb, frustrated, and weak from all that has taken place in America since January 20, 2017. I have no place to go except bed, so I guess until he is removed, dies, or is not re-elected I think I will just sleep for the next 3.5 years.
That is my Thought for the Day.
