If you have a Facebook account, you can’t help but see the periodic ramblings of latent racists who will plead that we need to “take our country back.”
I have always seen this as code for, “I can’t stand the fact that a black man is president.”
I guess we have all just witnessed in South Carolina what is reaped when hatred is sown.
Venting your racist emotions may seem kind of harmless – it isn’t – until some poor soul who is struggling with mental stability decides to become your hero by carrying out your orders.
We now have nine innocent souls who were slaughtered while praying because a large number of haters felt the need to demand their country back.
I almost wrote “I hope you are happy,” but that sarcastic comment might be misinterpreted by the same folks who spewed the hatred in the first place.
Actually, I hope they are saddened by having participated in the wave of hatred which spawned this heinous act. I hope they have learned that you reap what you sow.
We have all just seen what the harvest is when you plant hatred.
