Even though it was in the previous comment section, I find myself ruminating on the connection between the poisoning of Mexicans at the Southern border and the use of those same chemicals in the Nazi Concentration Camps. Also I find myself ruminating on what exactly it is that people are afraid of losing by accepting the "other". I struggle with this concept because it seems so unbalanced and irrational. What exactly do I lose if I live next to a Black person? Of course - I know the reality of what I "lose" but I am thinking about this more esoterically. We even as white people have ceded so much of our personal humanity and power to a structure that is unhealthy for all. And then we have turned around and multiplied that unhealthiness for every "other" group times a zillion. I am struggling with having meaningful conversations with people who just want to relegate history to history without seeing how the ripples come forward to our current situation. I also struggle with the fact that so many narratives are excluded from the history most Americans know.
