including their voters, have returned racism to where it was 60-80 years ago...............

Starting during W's occupation of the White house, I have successfully eradicated every last Republican Friend or acquaintance from my life. And for good reason...........

When I was a teenager, my mother's friend called a beautiful resort hotel to make a reservation for her parents who were coming to visit. This was the conversation.

"I would like to make a reservation for my parents for the week of February 15."

"Great. We have availability for that week. May I have your parents' name?"

"Silverman."

"Please hold."

Three minutes later.

"I'm so sorry, I've made a terrible mistake. My manager made another reservation and we are now fully booked for that entire week."

"I see. You know it's because of people like you that Jesus was born in a barn."

and I saw this same shit time and time again in my 7-12 grades.........and here in Denver !!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I was much younger, Joseph Coors, (Yes that Coors), would gather a bunch of his buddies dressed in white, drag a huge wooden cross up to the top of Table Top mountain, above their Golden beer distillery, and light it on fire so everyone in Denver could see it...
Happened every last Sunday, of every month I think my mother told me.......

And Coor's racism continued on through out my early adulthood..........we never drank Coors beer ever again........In the 70's he added his racism to include the Mexican Population..........

You got this Goy's last four Valentine hearts. So moving and so emblematic of how we should all treat our neighbors.

"Old dude, a little scruffy, probably a creeper, a pedo democrat, best to keep the kid away from him."

And that's all they'll see. They're that limited by ignorance and fear.
