2020, What a Year

by lewwaters

What a year 2020 has been. Political divisions have deepened, people are more at each other’s throats than ever before in my life and we again elected a President half the country deems a fraud, with good reason.

Black Lives Matter and Antifa are rioting across the country and vandalizing businesses, creating mayhem everywhere they can, denying others free travel and endangering people’s lives in city after city.

Groups like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Ku Klux Klan or any others have no right whatsoever to intimidate or physically assault people that support a candidate they oppose.

Much of my formative years was less than three blocks from those tracks with a highly prejudiced Dad frequently ranting about how the Black people needed to “just stay in their place,” while I looked around our own roach-infested shack that was no better than we could see when looking across the tracks.

I can’t say that he hated Black people as did others, he was more stuck in what he was raised believing on somehow, Whites were supposedly better and “it’s just the way things are.”

Couldn’t prove it to me in how he supported us.
