Recently two incidents went viral as a result of people not liking someone who holds a different political view. Both we’re unnecessary and caused a wall of separation between the two sides.
First there was the incident at the Red Hen Restaurant involving the Whitehouse Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders and her family.
Several employees at the restaurant claimed that they did not feel comfortable with her eating there so they notified the owner of their reaction of her presence. The owner agreed and asked the guests to leave even though they had not caused a disturbance.
We next heard about a sitting U.S. member of Congress speaking to a crowd of supporters asking them to harass anyone associated with the Trump Administration when they are spotted out and about. I’m talking about Congresswoman Maxine Waters of California.
It is obvious that both of these incidents resemble the old Jim Crow days, and are an afront to the American Dream.
America seems to be returning to the pre Civil Rights days of denying service in an establishment or harassing someone because they are different than they think that they should be. This time it’s based on politics, but it really isn’t any different than racism.
American’s need to put our differences aside and work toward a common goal of unity, economic growth, and a strong United nation.
We are headed down hill from Martin Luther King’s mountain, and it is hurting our nation. Besides, these actions are likely to endanger lives.
It’s time to stop fighting one another and to join hands to make the dream of unity come true.
Let’s fight our battles at the ballot box, not against one another.
