America needs to ship off racism
Debbie Bayles’ letter to the editor published July 18 left me with very uneasy feelings. Donald Trump’s campaign rally truly brought out the ugliness of our White House occupant and his supporters. Why do we constantly have to denigrate other races?
The four congresswomen are Americans and duly elected by their constituents. If their constituents do not like the job they are doing, I am sure they will be voted out of office.
Who are Republicans to question other people’s love for our country and their loyalty? Never heard of the First Amendment? Where do you to ship them off to? Three of them were born here. Only Ilhan was born abroad.
I never would question any Republicans’ love and loyalty for our country, even if I disagree with them on every political aspect.
When Trump was elected, I thought we hit rock bottom but apparently rock bottom has a basement. The open and also veiled racist comments are downright ugly. Racism does not serve our country well.
Like it or not, we are a changing society. We are turning into the most diverse population and in my opinion that is a good thing. We demonstrate what our country is all about and should embrace and celebrate it. No other country on this planet can match us. You cannot turn back the clock.
In a short time, whites will be the minority and no political hate can change it. A sign of intelligence is adaption. If the Republican Party keeps this up, it will go the way of the dinosaurs. They need to be inclusive or the party will be a “has been.” We are all Americans and that ugliness has no place in our country.
