How the faithful forget themselves, what right do they have to possess the blindfold of ignorance in this life? Bowing to his holy books, he surrender his being to the knowledge within the calligraphy, those same eyes finding truth among scratches upon a page, yet not seeing the same within the humanity that surrounds him?

While I am glad I sit in Canada far removed from the Charlottesville protests, one cannot help but look at whats happening. I can sympathize with the white supremacists to a certain extent. I understand times are changing things, things you have enjoyed are being taken away, it would be terrifying no doubt. The sympathy I extend is the same the same sympathy I extend to a child’s terror when a light in a room suddenly shuts off, where it was on. It is your fear, your lack of education or lack of knowledge that provokes my sympathy, not your cause. Yet I find the protest silly, the ideals of equality, tolerance and diversity scare them so much, that it takes so much away from them. Their anger is misdirected why blame the treatment? Blame the disease of racism that requires such a bitter and harsh treatment, if so much was not given earlier on that was not yours to take, not so much would need be given back now. If the attempting to end racism is so brutal bloody then so to was bloody and brutal the process of its unchecked growth on humanity.

The issue in the states of regarding the hatred towards the trans gendered, is not about the leftist versus rightist. Its an issue about common human decency. To say that its a new concept in of itself would be wrong and unjust for they have existed throughout history, but it is a new concept to me, to my understanding that it is and I do not know much about it, let alone understand in the same way who is trans-gendered would. It’s fine that I don’t understand, I may never will. What is not right is to expect an another human being who as much a right to exist and desire to exist as I, to conform, to conform only to bring comfort to my own ignorance. That is something I  do understand.
