Why are people so hateful?
Thursday, December 22, 2016
I generally don't get into political stuff on Facebook, but tonight I responded to a post on someone's page--a person I've known all my life. I made sure I wasn't name calling, putting anyone down, or being disrespectful because I don't treat people that way. I was told I was an effing liberal, disillusioned, and needed to get the blinders off. Then, he added "build the wall!!" which really bothered me, because I'm half Mexican. So, I unfriended him and told him why. I see the aftermath of this election in what has happened to many of my students and their families--being spit on for wearing a hijab, being called terrorists, being afraid of their families being broken up--This election has brought out the worst in a lot of people, and I'm getting tired of 'we won, get over it'. No one is going to win if things keep going crazy.
Rant over. I'm sure there are a lot of people here who don't agree with me either, but at least I won't be called nasty names.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Solstice....
