Dreamer's World - McKinney, Texas
Sometimes we hear or see things that we wish were only bad nightmares rather than reality. Yesterday was one of those days for me. I finally saw the video taken at the pool party in McKinney, Texas and I have to say that it made me sick to my stomach.
I felt as if I were watching a documentary about Racism in the 1940s or 1950s. Sadly, this happened in 2015 and shows once again that we as a country have such a long way to go in order to eliminate the scourge of Racism. There are far too many White Americans who are full of hate. They cannot and will not allow for a country that is free for everyone. They cannot and will not do away with their obsolete view of racial superiority over everyone else.
I do feel sorry for people like that, but they are dangerous to everyone around them. They cannot compromise their warped beliefs, and deep down they know that they are on the wrong side of history and Justice. Sadly, this just makes them even more dangerous to everyone else. People like this often are involved with other RWNJ causes, they have a fun fetish, and they believe that everyone else is out to get them. We have an entire culture that panders to this line of thinking, and it is called Fox News. No belief is too outlandish for them as long as it fits in with their "conservative" view of the world.
Add to this the disturbing culture of white people who want to live in gated communities in order to "feel safe", when they are blatantly trying to keep people who don't look and believe like them out. Something has to fill the void in their lives that could be filled by interaction with other people, and HATE and RACISM rush in to fill that void.
