Watching the violence in San Jose where mostly Hispanic progressives beat up mostly white Trump supporters was breathtaking. It's taken me a couple of days for me to process it.
I went onto Twitter and perused the #altright hashtag where the worst of the Trumpkins live and found lots of antisemitism* and plenty more. One fellow posted a video about the San Jose attacks and asked the logical question, "What would be happening if the races were reversed and whites had attacked Hispanics?" He said, correctly, that this would be an internationally-covered incident and would have been front and center for weeks. Instead, since the victims were white, the whole thing was quickly shoved under the rug.
His diagnosis was right, but his remedy was wrong - a white homeland. That's what's also wrong with the bigots in La Raza and the racists in the Black Lives Matter movement. It's always more and more race talk and more and more repayment for injustices. It can never end because all sides weigh the values of the injustices differently and they always see themselves as getting the short end of the stick.
This is only going to end when we stop talking about race, when we see each other as fellow children of God. This is why Christ preached forgiveness. Without forgiveness, the cycle will go on forever.
