    Default Go Back to Where You Came From

    I would venture to say that 99.9% of us have at some stage been told to GO BACK to Africa. And I'd also venture to say you remember when it happened.

    I was in elementary school - about 7 or 8. A classmate bully named Gregory Streeter said it to me. I didn't understand what he meant at first, but then he went into this insult-laden commentary about how my skin was dirty because it was brown and started laughing at me. That's when I started to cry.

    But I also remembered my other classmates, especially my friends Liz and Jennifer (whom I am still friends with to this day) coming to my rescue and him getting punished by my teacher and having to apologize to me.

    Over the years, it has been shouted across the street at me and my friends, it's happened in clubs. 'Go back to [wherever].'

    The fact that repulsiveness is coming out of the mouth of this president* doesn't shock or even surprise me. In fact, the only surprise is that it has taken this long for him to say it out loud. He is a racist. He has always been a racist. He was a racist when he was sued by the State of NY for housing discrimination against people of color. He was a racist when he demanded the execution of 5 innocent Black boys. He was a racist when he and his family of cretins stated birtherism. He was a racist when he spoke of a Muslim ban. He has shown us who he is and continues to show us who he is.

    What I'm waiting to see is what kind of country the USA is, because his support among the republicans is soaring after these comments against the black and brown Congresswomen.

    Are we heading for another civil war against white nationalists? Sure looks like it to me.

    I agree that GOP is going for broke. They are taking no prisoners and obviously are on board with the demise of the nation. It will not be pretty.

    We need some home boys in politics to deal with Lord Sith and his GOP Gang.
