I've been taking in the events over the weekend in Charlottesville, VA with much apprehension. While I can't say this surprises me, especially in light of the current political climate in the country, I am, however, sad to see it unfold like it has. Some say it was inevitable, while others would rather stay in denial wishing they could ignore it. I have to side with those who predicted this. People are getting tired of the racial bigotry that's been woven into this country's culture that has been around since the country was founded. There is no logical justification for it to continue.

For far too long this country has been in denial about the hypocrisy of the words of our Constitution vs the reality in which it's been so selectively applied to only a privileged few of it's citizens. It's past time that the country live up to the words and creed it was supposedly founded on. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Those words penned by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence have never been realized in this country and people are way beyond tired of "pretending" that this is what our country is all about.

It's time to remove the monuments of the confederates that tried to destroy this country. They don't need to remain in public, tax-payer funded places. I don't care about their "historical value" because their messages and lessons of chaos and racism were wrong then and they are wrong now. This country must evolve and turn it's back on it's bloody, racist, white supremacy past. Sadly this chapter of our collective history seems very reluctant to die. Racism continues to rear it's ugly head, generation after generation. This just can't continue to be ignored, it won't just go away until it's weeded out deliberately. I have no desire to start a race war, however, I can't go along with the hatred and pretend to "normalize" it. Everyone of good will must now start to stand up and eliminate those elements that seek to keep our country divided along racial and cultural lines.
Here in my adopted hometown of San Antonio, TX they are debating about removing a confederate monument in Travis Park. It needs to come down and the good ole boys need to be shown the error of their ways. I hope that the city council here will vote to take it down and not bow to the political pressure that's been brought to them. People all over are watching, and you can best believe people are tried of those trying to make racism and hatred politically correct. It's not correct and it never will be.
The events in the coming weeks with speak volumes as to that direction that our country is heading in. It's beyond time for like-minded people to hold this country to the words of Thomas Jefferson and the other authors of our Constitution. No more excuses or delays. We are a nation of immigrants and refugees. Our strength lies in our diversity, not in our hatred and racial strife. Let's get it together America. We can do better than this!!
