The Other People_2018

This is about my country America at a time that even with the passage of events that have changed this nation from civil rights to the rights of gays, the disabled, the elderly, those who choose to enter this country by less than legal opportunities. These are people from all over the world who are willing to risk their lives to experience the American dream of a place where you can have a better life because of your work ethic.

Make America great again was the rallying call of those who remember when minorities knew their place and did not question the status quo. The fact that the president referred to countries that have a major population of dark-skinned people as shit-holed countries. This one statement has sparked outrage from around the world. The American public has remained strangely silent on this verbal attack on people of color by our president who considered the leader of the free world.

The deportations of anyone living in this country who doesn’t have permanent resident status has increased under the Trump administration. We must not forget what happened to the Japanese Americans during the second world war. The past can always be repeated the history of mankind has proven this over thousands of years of history. America is not perfect but those who we choose to be our leaders should be as close to that goal as humanly possible. Sometimes we get it wrong. Very wrong.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
