Like many of you, I was shocked by the horrible events in Charlottesville, Virginia. Armed hoodlums, carrying torches, marched through the city intimidating anyone who would dare stand up to them. They preached messages of hate. Anyone who did not fit into the mob"s ideals of white power, male dominance, xenophobia, homophobia, were targets for this hate. In an act of terror, one woman lost her life when she was run over by one of the white supremacists. If I didn't know better, I would have sworn these images were from 1930's Germany and not the 21st century. The fact that many of the alt right protestors didn't even feel the need to hide their faces shows that hate has become a new normal for many. And that very much scares me.
