We think that no matter how uncomfortable it makes people…we need to talk to one another about some of the things that divide us and come up with some empathy and some answers….

Much agreed! Change (including evolution of thinking) is often uncomfortable, but we have to push through it if we want to see progress.

Holy crap! The police officer with his picture and his name out there.. and his words!! WOW!! These are the cops we do NOT want on the street! Not all police officers are bad, I know a few good cops, but that guy he is a grade A a-hole.
And if you’re going to call someone racist… learn how to spell racist, Rachel Holmes. Racist is a big word to throw around, but it’s not that big of a word to spellcheck. The Philly Teacher, love her!
The ugly on Twitter ::shakes head:: sometimes it’s just too much.

And these are things he said on Facebook. I shudder to think what he’s said/written privately.
The ugly on Twitter is thankfully outweighed (IMO) by all insightful & humorous tweets. Thank goodness for the “block” feature.
