Fighting Racism in America

This powerful article, written by Katherine Fugate, speaks the truth about how we all have the ability to fight racism and xenophobia.

If you are concerned about the current level of racism in this country, I recommend you read it.

And I’ll throw in a comic about racism just for fun:

    I loved her article. It brought back many memories, none as bad as her life, but the similarities in attitudes that I grew up with in the mid last century reminded me of so many things. My father was a bigot, but he was a very smart man, who I think, in another time, would not have been one. In spite of his verbal showing of intolerance, regardless of skin color, would give people the shirt off his back. The last part was the bane of my mother’s existence. “Why can’t you make the house payment?” “Well Calvin needed a loan.” Calvin could have been white, black or otherwise. Didn’t matter. His words were bigoted, but the actions, at times were otherwise. His daddy took him to a lynching when he was about 8 or 9. He only talked about it one time when I was around. I suspect his daddy beat his three boys and his wife at times, but that was not talked about either. Grandpa died when I was 4, so I have no real memories of the man. Just bits and pieces of comments that I can sometimes remember, perhaps wrongly. I do wish I had paid more attention when they all talked, thinking that us little people would not listen, (they were right).
