I hoped that my loved ones and myself aren’t ran-off the road. I hope someone doesn’t start a physical fight with us at a store with ill intentions. By us, I mean minority people ( Black, Asians, Hispanics, LGBT). There has been an increase of hate crimes and harassment cases since 2016. We’ve witnessed first hand the unveiling of those we’ve called friends, family, or worked beside show their disgust for us.
Yet, I still held on to the notion that people are generally good. This year has brought to light that people aren’t good. We are selfish, self-righteous, greedy, and bias. At most, good people are trying people who are humble enough to recognize their flaws and intentionally work on improving them.
( I know that a small percentage of minorities that I mentioned also voted for DT. These people are more likely immature, money hungry, or self-hating. They may step on your head to get to the top or stab you in the back. However, I don’t fear they will be violent from the sight of me.)
Also, I’m not a straight party voter. I vote on what I think is best for American people. I’m not anti-Republican. I’m antibullying and against xenophobia, racism, sexism, classism, and just overall uncivil behavior.
