Charlottesville: We Cannot Wash Our Hands of This

Hello, we are white America, and we have a problem. We are equal opportunity haters; we hate Republicans or Democrats or foreigners or our neighbors or taxes or religion or technology or inconvenience with equal passion and aplomb. We have convinced ourselves that OUR personal preference trumps the common good and have dug in our heels about the fact that YOUR belief system, sexual orientation, religion and skin color has to be as wholly right by me as my very complicated Starbucks’ drink order.
