Today, 49 Muslims were killed in two mosque shootings in New Zealand. The shooter, a white male, cited the United States’ far-right ideology, and specifically Donald Trump, as his motivation. He proudly called himself a White Supremacist.
Hate crimes are up for the third year in a row; up 17% just in the last year alone. Donald Trump, when questioned today, didn’t think it was a problem. That’s because he is part of it. He’s using his best words to incite violence. He’s been doing it since he rode his fat orange ass down that escalator at Trump Tower and vilified Mexicans.
While Trump continues to attack people of color, calling them “invaders” in our land, White Supremacists are killing Muslims, Jews, and People of Color:
- Christchurch Mosque: white supremacist, 49 dead
- Tree Of Life Synagogue: white supremacist, 11 dead
- Mother Emanuel AME Church: white supremacist, 9 dead
- Oak Creek Sikh Temple: white supremacist, 6 dead
- Oakland Park Jewish Center: white supremacist, 11 dead
- Islamic Center of Quebec City: white supremacist, 6 dead
How many more people have to die?!
We MUST overcome fear and hatred; we must stand up to bullies–even if they are the president of the United States. We must look out for our fellow human beings. We must be the change we wish to see. We must live a positive life filled with love and kindness directed toward ourselves and especially others. We must use our #whiteprivilege to help others. We must speak up for our neighbors and friends.
We must transform blarney and bluster into laughter, love, and luck.
