Anybody who doesn’t think racism played into this election at all is either lying or a fool. The GOP was never shy about using dog whistles to signal their southern strategy but Trump used a bullhorn while jumping up and down waving his arms. The racists now have seized upon Trump’s win of the electoral college that since the President is fine and dandy with using racist statements that it is once again perfectly acceptable in America to be an out and open proud bigot.
I wanted to share the letters that were put into my mailbox by apparently one of my neighbors on Maple street in Natick over the last three days. My heart and my deepest feelings of right/wrong and basic civility have been challenged by these two letters attached. Being a white man and never having personally experienced this kind of racial bigotry I am truly humbled and angered and ashamed by what is still present in our world today. I was brought up to not see color in my communities that were mostly white. My parents have always had many friends of color and taught me to be very excepting of every culture and difference in man/womankind. To me I am so deeply offended and worried for all of us. How have we come so far and yet we still have this kind of hatred?
It is my intention to make this public and go to the TV stations within a couple days. I need to speak with my housemates before I do this to make sure they are comfortable with what I’m about to do. I have zero tolerance for this kind of behavior and of course the Natick Police are 100% behind me in investigating this horrendous action. I’m not even sure how this will end up. But I can tell you that I am 100% committed to stepping forward and bringing this person to justice. To changing people’s viewpoints one day at a time. If anyone has any thoughts or experience please share. We must stand together and never allow this to happen to anyone.
