Hate in America: Matthew Shepard, Pipe Bombs, Pittsburgh Synagogue

Hate in America: Matthew Shepard, Pipe Bombs, Pittsburgh Synagogue | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
What We All Must Do
Ron Halber, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington, asked the question all of us are asking: “What is happening in our America?”

He went on: “The anti-Semitic, racism and bigotry have become normalized. Combine that with the accessibility of social media, mental illness, available weaponry and now you have a toxic brew that will culminate in violence.”

Halber wasn’t content with handwringing, though. He said the most important thing we can do to reverse the uptick in hate crimes is a “change in our national discourse.” That prompted sustained applause.

But he wasn’t done. “Something has become rotten in America’s moral fiber in our society,” he bellowed, “and we must and we will take America back.”
Al Cannistra's insight:

there are those who would try to shift it all to Trump rather than accept culpability....   we are in an America where late night talk shows are ALL anti-President (no respect whatsoever) - it feeds hate - we are in a society that believes we have the right to be be be belligerent, we are a society that has to find blame, not accept responsibility - we are a society headed for implosion - and an end.

.

time to change the course set by the media day after day (the media/Trump war)...  time to demand that it ends - or we do not survive - of that i am certain

Ferguson, Missouri, Declines to Elect First Black Mayor

Ferguson, Missouri, Declines to Elect First Black Mayor | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it

Voters in Ferguson, Missouri, re-elected Mayor James Knowles III on Tuesday in the first election since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in 2014.

Al Cannistra's insight:

"Ferguson, Missouri, Declines to Elect First Black Mayor" - isn't that headline - a bunch of CRAP...   when the news media stops writing slanted headlines - and writes a proper story - race relations will improve again (it is going to take 25 years to recover from 8)....   there were simply 2 candidates and one won. End of story - EXCEPT - if the authors had looked at the Census Bureau they would find about 67% of the population there is BLACK...  well, duh, if the race was all about Black and White who do you think would have won? STOP MAKING IT ABOUT RACE PEOPLE - it is simply about - PEOPLE
