The 2nd Impeachment Trial

If you want to be heart-broken about our country, watch the Impeachment Trial at the Senate. What is wrenching is to watch an attack on our Capital, on our electoral system, on our police and then watch the 85% of our Republican Senators not give a shit.

I understand it is politics. But it hurts. So I haven't commented on it. It's not that I don't care, but I have to pretend not to care. IF I cared, I would have to leave the country. A country where the President inflames, incites and then is let off the hook after multiple people were killed.  

We are a country where the white criminals that stormed them capital (and killed 1 police and injured multiple police) are allowed to go to Mexico on vacation while out on bail, but where black Americans are killed with no consequences for playing in the park, going to 7-11 or even walking out of their own homes when a policeman asks them to. Where black children under 8 are handcuffed and put to the ground because they were in a car with the police (wrongly!) thought was stolen, but these people who drug the police to the ground and beat them with metal flag-poles (with the American flag on them) are transferred to different prisons because they only eat non-GMO food!

This trial shows that white people have very few consequences, rich white people have fewer consequences, and the most powerful white people are allowed to incite murder and insurrection and get away with it.

It is too sad for me to comment on. That is why I am trying to ignore it. If it wasn't for Ed's job (and Covid) I would be out of here.

  1. Sometimes I'm embarrassed to be white. And very sad that I don't know if there is anything I can do to fix it.


I am pretty sure this has been paraphrased
