Looking to Our Party’s Future
We need peace. This week in 1992 we saw civil unrest with the L.A. riots. I was working for Long Beach at the time. We received a thank you letter.
“The three days of disorder killed more than 60 people, injured almost 2,000, led to 7,000 arrests, and caused nearly $1 billion in property damage, including the burning of more than 3,000 buildings.” History.
We have seen so many deaths or the brutal treatment of people, especially minorities over the past three years it is stomach churning. Screaming about something and doing something about it are two different things. Let’s not turn back the clock to 1992.
Trump won over people who were economically oppressed using divisive fear and hate campaigns targeting people by race, religion, gender and ethnicity. 2020 will be a little different. His tactics did’t stop after the election because when you use a fear or hate based campaign you have nothing else left to build upon! Don’t bring this hate or fear into our party. Candidates, activists and delegates in our party are not racists, et al. We are volunteers spending our own time and money trying to make the world better for other people. People just want to be treated fairly. They don’t want or deserve to be publicly shamed. If you cannot stop yourself from publicly shaming someone as the reason for your feeling of being oppressed – call out the people in the Republican party that let it get this far!
Remember, when we win, we all get a seat at the table. We level up, we advance, then we rise!
More to come..stay tuned!
