Ha! Those who wish to have me banned and silenced are real Americans. Funny how so many liberals and progressives are so quick to try and take one's inalienable rights.

Our forefathers were not perfect but they set up the best damn country in the history of the world. I notice no one mentioned the statues and names of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington being torn down. Everyone's fine with that too? How long before Lincoln and some of the others are sanitized?
As far as virtual book burning, Amazon and social media platforms have been erasing content. What would you call that? They have taken it upon themselves to decide what you read or see.
It baffles me that people here are in favor of mob rule, silencing people, destroying art and history and books...I mean, seriously. Isn't that exactly what Germany went through?
This country has always looked and tried to better itself. Our constitution was written in such a way as to allow for things our forefathers could not predict. We have many amendments through the years that have done just that. Made progress and looked to find ways to make more.
Forgive me if I don't support those who wish to tarnish and tear apart those ideals. If social change and equality need further amendments, there is a lawful way and system in place to make those changes. We have a LONG history of doing just that.
As I said, too many people focus only on the problem and not the solutions. How much is slavery still used as an indictment against our history when we're the ones that ended it. It's ridiculous. Talk about blinders.
So, are there social inequities? Sure. But I don't chalk it up to racism nearly as much as classism. Which will NEVER end. If the US is so terrible, why do MILLIONS of immigrants risk everything to still come here every year?
