We can make jokes about this, but there is something seriously disturbing when the leader of this nation says something like this. As if this isn’t bad enough, he stated that ‘why don’t we have more immigrants from Norway?’ A country where 94 percent are native Norwegian and four percent are “other European”. What’s wrong with people from African countries. They bring culture and richness to the U.S. They contribute. They explore. They broaden perspectives. All immigrants do. I sincerely hope that we all can see that there are things that we have to discuss as a nation. It’s far too late to isolate the president as ‘just an old racist’. The issue is much, much deeper than that. Hopefully through the blatant darkness that surrounds us, we can arise - a new people, that are free from the evils of xenophobia, racism, and sexism if we all tried. Yes, there is no way to rid the world completely, but we can purge the world of cultural and systematic oppression of all sorts. WE NEED TO COME TOGETHER. AS A PEOPLE. AS HUMAN BEINGS. #peace#trump#love#endtoracism#endtoxenophobia#together#togetherwecanmakeadifference#hope#wecandothistogether

“Tell dem about the dream Martin” - Mahalia Jackson.
From the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28th 1963.
America is a hotbed of racism and bigotry again because of one man and his scarcity mindset and inexcusable tolerance for abhorrent behaviours.
I feel bigotry daily because of my Aspergers, I know how it feels to be excluded and limited by people who think they are better than me. *NEWSFLASH*
No-one on is better than me and I am better than no-one. Keep your fucking bigotry to yourself because a STORM is coming, a Terminator 2 STORM, a hurricane that will wipe bigots off the face of my ... Quand je Serai Lancé [I am the Lancé]
Martin Luther King had a dream to stop segragation and racism through peaceful non violent protests. He made his dream come true and stopped segragation in America. We need to be leaders like him and start a great cause #mlk#racismisnotgood#endtoracism#peace#peaceful#protest
Miramichi New Brunswick...WHAT THE????? In the U.S. many collect these black faced ceramic pieces of 'Americana' under the guise of ....oh, they represent a piece of our History that we cannot forget and remind us of how far we've come. As it turns out...not as far as many people think.
NEVER have I been comfortable with seeing these ANYWHERE. Many depict the negative stereotype that others have of People of African Descent. I've seen big red lips, them holding either corn or watermelon with a grin (and teeth) that filled their face, and ones where the male subject looks more like a crow. Though this subject if merely fishing it still IS NOT a good thing. So, I am sharing this picture because it's not okay in the U.S. and it's not okay in Canada. We are people of beauty and value who are pioneers, artists, and scholars. When you latch on to these negative depictions you latch onto the VERY WORST of your southern neighbors.
Be more than that....be more gracious, inclusive, open-minded, unbiased, and SMARTER than those who are primitive in thought and ignorant in their chosen stance.
