I just scrolled through my Facebook feed and found this appalling little post waiting for me. Sadly, it was posted by someone I actually know, and used to work with. I have been acquainted with this woman for over 25 years, but I suddenly feel as though I just met her for the first time. I can’t say I was impressed with the introduction, either. As the election year drags on we will see more of this ignorance, intolerance, hate, and rabble rousing and I do not look forward to it at all. I abhor the ugliness that lurks behind this behavior and these awful attitudes, regardless of where it originates. Shame on the person who originated this pic, shame on the one who added the nasty message to it, shame on the one who posted it on Facebook, shame on anyone who shared it because they supported it………..and shame on me as well. I put it here in protest of the racism and hate behind it, but honestly I am not much better, because I just spread it around a little, too. A picture IS worth a thousand words, and I hope none of the words from this picture ever worm their way into my vocabulary. How disgusting.
