open letter to an obama friend
I'm not going to read your last email, (insert your name here),
cause it's probably just as angry as mine was
and we ARE in danger of not being friends anymore
and THAT has been my point all along.
HOW is this guy bringing the country...together...
When even close friends are fighting OVER him?
I suggest, and NOT in anger or resentment or bitterness,
but as an american with a currently small a who is...worried,
that this "unifier" WILL tear this already frayed country apart.
And it's happening already
I can't TELL you how I really feel about the New Racism.
"we are all a little racist" and how that notion truly offends me.
You can't TELL me how you really feel AS a minority
(never really part of the American dream even as you live it)
If Obama IS the Great Unifier, WHY is this happening ABOUT him?
And you say Hillary devides us and I say...at least she admits it.
We're sniping at each other and we are NOT the enemy.
And I suggest he...may be.
But I can't feel safe to say so and you can't hear it if I do.
And this could get a LOT worse.
A lot worse.
So if we really can't talk, it's best for us not to try for now.
And I say that NOT beacause you are not my friend anymore
but because you still are.
