I’ve been trying all week to write something about the horrors in Charlottesville. I also have been trying all week to get everything “in order” for a vacation, and those two things mean I haven’t done particularly well at either. But I do not intend on being silent for long. I will speak out against the “Unite the Right” (what BS that is) rally and I will also speak out about white silence, including mine. In this current atmosphere, silence is assent – and I do not, in any way, assent to white nationalism of any kind.
I won’t be silent for long. And I invite other equality-minded white folks who are in my similar position of scatter to break their silence as well.
