I knew this would not end well.

 

As an African-American, I feel truly ashamed of what is happening to my country.

Honestly, I didn't expect anything more from this man.  I figured he would find a way NOT to blame or condemn the ones who need to be and instead make it seem as if it's the counterprotesters' fault.

Someone has already died of their injuries as a result of this.  These white supremacists people are no better than ISIS or Al Qaeda. Using the same terrorist tactics.

These Nazis are the same people who voted for Trump.

I have learned there is no way to be fair and reasonable with racism.  It is a cancer and you have to treat it as such.
