I am 66 years old ... soon to be 67. Have I been sleeping for the last 66 years? I've never been a political activist despite being in attendance at various on-campus protest rallies during the 1960s, despite being a union rep for much of my teaching career, despite quitting a job in the early 70's upon learning that a male without my education was being paid far more than I was, despite caring and supporting many local issues, despite always casting my vote. Where has all this racism and hatred come from? This denial that immigration has strengthened and enriched our country? This viciousness and incivility? I am feeling gob-smacked. I can hardly write about this.............
I need to stop watching the RNC. It may make me into a hater of haters.
