11. 'Had the Chance'

HAD
There was a war fought to keep the country together.

And why on Earth do you want to just ignore the many people who don't deserve such a fate?

And what about those western states and others that are bright red? Giving them a pass? Some of them are home to some of the most virulent militias ever.
Look in your own damn back yard and turn over some rocks. You might be unpleasantly surprised what you find?
As I remember, Boston had a time integrating their schools.

In addition, you are hearing the loudest and most ignorant voices here. They are frantic and getting louder because they can read the tea leaves. They are doing everything in their power to entrench themselves. It would be easier to get rid of chiggers all over your body.

So, meh to you, that book, and everyone who wants us gone. We ain't going anywhere. Help those of us who are working in horrible conditions to move forward. I didn't live through the awful '60s and the hard won rights for people in these states to watch everyone shrug and say let them go.

MLK would be ashamed of everyone of you! Find a book of his speeches and writings and try to catch a clue. Read his 'Letter From The Birmingham Jail!'
Medgar Evers
Schwerner, Chaney, and Goodman
Emmitt Till
And remember these people too. Explain to their relatives why you want us gone.
