24. I want to hug them all. And the ones in the post below, too.

How tragic that we have society where a twitter account like this is needed.


While Obama being elected is an incredible statement in how far we've come, I think it has pissed off the racists off beyond belief. They are more open with their vile & hate than I have seen, since I was a kid back in the 60s. The media magnifies the teabagger movement & that has, imo, given the baggers a sense of validation of their racism. It also lends the appearance that we are taking the issue seriously, when really we aren't. We talk about if it's ever OK for a white person to use the N word, but we never discuss poverty, poor education, lack of opportunity & how these things impact minority youth.

I live in a predominately white area that is affluent & my friends & I agree that we've heard more racist comments from people we never thought were racist, since Prez O was elected. I've deleted people from my address book.

Every time I think of the verdict I seethe. These boys deserve to grow up in a better America.
