I've been hearing a lot about the importance of “coming together” in the aftermath of the US election.
My initial reaction - amidst the frustration, the anger, and the fear I felt - was...
You want us to what?!
Now that those initial emotions have subsided, I'm able to think coherently and rationally.
And, I realized...
Why is the oppressed always the one compromising and working with the privileged? Recognize what is wrong with that notion.
We need to address that. Don’t tell me that this will make our country even more divisive. It IS divisive. And, the people in power have to acknowledge that.
