Randy sent this to me. Here is what he wrote as he wrote it far better than I could. Hugs.
In this scenario, the “white” woman has advocated and used her position of relative strength to speak up against something. But, we see these things every day: The way a person may discount a person who doesn’t look “American”, or in the case of someone who is native American looks too American. Or, say how someone has decided they can speak ill of someone who is gay, poor, whatever. In essence, if we stand by and let hate be put forth, what do we obtain but a country divided? Welcome to the republican agenda, who can only prosper in a land of division.
*edited this to correct the months that I was out of school. It was some time in the earliest part of spring because the old snow was trying to melt away, and I was taken out of school not to return until we moved twice.* Hugs
No one wants to hear what I have to say about this. No one wants to hear me rant and rave. I don’t want to use words that I need to express my anger at this. Remember when in the late 1960’s when the people I lived with were accused of abuse of myself, they simply moved. I have told the story before how they moved twice in the spring to mid summer. I was taken out of school and did not return until we were in a completely different town and school system. SO here is an excerpt from the article. Hugs.
To avoid the social services, the education system and doctors, the parents moved to another province. After a few more years of pain, isolation, starvation and a lack of sufficient medical treatment, Alex died. Now, both of the parents have been convicted to life in prison for first degree murder. Justice has been served, but it was too late for Alex and his life could have been saved by the system years before if it was not because of the decision of a judge to give him back to his parents. Later investigations would reveal that the parents had gotten another child taken from them earlier and another infant that had died under mysterious circumstances.
They denied that he had diabetes, kept him isolated and starved him for years.

Few things make me angrier than the deliberate abuse and neglect of those who can not defend or speak up for themselves. This is why it is a horrible idea to give religions more power over a secular society. They have been taught that science is bad, wrong, and immoral because it might detract from the make believe of their god’s book. This is what you get when media elevates a person’s religious beliefs over all else. This is the direct result of decades of religions trying to force their myths to be taught in schools, to force their way into government, to force their myths on everyone else even those who do not agree or follow their myths. This is one reason why discrimination based on religious faiths must not become laws. If these discrimination laws based on religious faith get implemented we will see a lot more abuse and many more deaths of people unable to defend themselves against the hate and ignorance of religious people.

Timothy and Sarah Johnson, a couple from Minnesota, allowed their 7-year-old adopted child Seth to die of pancreatitis because they had “issues going to doctors.”
