I Am One Of The Safe Ones

Sadly, there are reports that support this feeling all over America. It's always been there, but since the election, the deplorables have come out in the open. They're bold with their hate. They seem to enjoy it.

It's unacceptable.  And what's even more egregious, is that the person at the helm, steering the ship, claims he's unaware and thinks it's a "very small amount".

I stand with Anand Giridharadas.

I stand with the victims of anti-Semitism, xenophobia, homophobia, racism, bigotry.

I stand with the victims of harassment and intimidation.  

I do not stand with hate mongers.  I do not stand with supporters of hate.  I do not stand with the people who voted in the hate.  You're on your own.  You created this backlash.  You emboldened the monster who terrorized our country for the past 18 months.  With your encouragement and support, his behavior, and this behavior has flourished.  It's disgusting.

I am one of the safe ones.

I will email you later today. I know how you feel. I went out grocery shopping late in the day after the election -- mind you, in deep blue Raleigh NC, home to good, well educated, realistic people -- and wondered which of the other shoppers were the pod people. They walk among us. We look like them. People might be wondering if you and I are among the majority of white women who voted Trump.

How in hell could they? I am ashamed for my country, and suspect we'd get a different result if allowed a "do over."
