ON THE BACK BURNER

March 20

America has such an ugly side. The land of opportunity is blemished by what we do to our neighbors. Land grabs from  Native Americans. Slavery that even after generations,hasn’t produced equality or color blindness. Anti semitism , discreetly camouflaged in some circles, blatant in other circles. Japanese interment during the Second World War, a travesty  that should haunt us.Now these crimes against Asians. What is wrong with us. I don’t  get it. We are mostly good people. None of us should be fearful, or intimidated. How can any of us tolerate these crimes,this hatefulness,to anyone. If you take the slogan, everyone is Irish on St Patrick’s day, just make some changes and say everyone is Native American, Black, Brown,Jewish,LGBTQIA,Asian, on every day. We are them, baby.
