After the 2016 election I posted this picture:
“Well, it’s been two weeks. Things still seem very unsettled and chaotic. It’s not an obvious disaster, yet, but many of the signs aren’t encouraging. If it does turn out pear-shaped, we might look back at this early indicator.
There are three human beings in the frame of that shot. All three share at least two characteristics. I’ll give you a hint: All are male, and all are white. #justsaying
Not even his FLOTUS-elect was allowed in shot. Interesting priorities.”
Now with the benefit of several years of this blatantly racist monster, it seems I was right to question the message that photo sends.
We’re already descending into the madness of another election cycle, and you can bet it’s going to get seriously ugly. We’re about to find out just what this country is anymore.
Have we completely lost our souls? Have we completely given ourselves over to expedience and tribalism? Is this the end of what the United States of American has been, and has stood for, for over 200 years?
Stay tuned, my friends!
