Brutal truth. Just brutal. Makes my stomach twist.

MK, I saw an article earlier this month or in Dec which called out the dark heart of human beliefs and compulsions. Among them the closely- held and rarely uttered- til Trump- belief that People of Color are sub-human.

The equally sickening piece to this is that there are plenty of folks on the Left who harbor the same beliefs, would never cop to them, but their support for Civil Rights is informed in part by pity and/or condescension.

It’s hard to stare down what lives deep inside us, that collective set of shared beliefs which continue to drive our words, behaviors, voting, all of it.

If I can track that article down I will forward it. Unpleasant, but very direct, reading.

Stay strong.
