Nice write up Francisco! I agree fully with the content of this post.
It is extremely hard to favor correcting human rights abuses when we are the BIG BULLY of the world as well as the European successor of colonialism and institutionalized racism at home and abroad! But measures should be taken to stop the internment camps in China as well as abolish ICE and the crimes against humanity being perpetrated under the Trump Administration! The marginalization pf our cultural nations which include The Indigenous Nations and Puerto Rico is deplorable!! The cash bail system and privatization of correctional facilities, the disenfranchisement of people of color, the voter suppression and gerrymandering of districts , all point to a POT Calling the KETTLE BLACK!! But we should start an honest dialogue nationally so that one day NO PARENT IS AFRAID That his or her child is in danger when they leave home!! America needs to learn to celebrate our cultural differences and understand that we must take responsibility for our feelings!! No one else should carry the burden of our own misgivings or prejudices!! America is great because thus far our collective conscience has defeated the ignorance and the hate; and we have overcome the perniciousness of greed! Trump has fanned the flames of that ignorance and hatred!! We must defeat him and his minions more wisely and completely this time!!
