Re: “Why does it still seem like nothing has changed on Calhoun's new plaque?

While I may not always agree With Mr. Green, I certainly agree completely with every word he offers in this column. There is no way to "whitewash" the crimes against humanity that slavery certainly represented and all those offending and repugnant monuments to white privilege need to be removed from American public properties as soon as possible. And I will certainly picket and protest to make that happen!!!

Re: “Resistance movement must fight hypocrisy to survive

I'm sympathetic to the Jewish history which is your birthright. Our very dear friend who was Jewish and an attorney in Manhattan told us a story about his father, a car mechanic in the Bronx. Walking down the street holding his father's hand, he was told- "See all these people on the street, son? The only real difference is their skin color. You can fit in here in America because you're white but the brown and black people can never fit in. Don't forget that and have compassion for all people!" He didn't forget that teaching and was one of the truly kindest people I ever met.
So I believe this is your blind spot, Ms.Lynnar, it is a very simple test to look in the mirror and see what color you are. Happy Thanksgiving...

Re: “Resistance movement must fight hypocrisy to survive

Thank you, Mr. Akhyari,for putting into eloquent language my feelings exactly. As a person who is pretty opinionated and passionate about loving "the other" even while retaining the prerogative to despise individuals in any group, I found amazing disparity among the fellow protestors at the Citadel rally. The church people in the group were disparaging the more militant faction and the anarchists were much more tolerant of the church people. Since I am a member of neither, I went around hugging without reserve but wondering if any progress against Trump's evil agenda could be realized when we, as protestors, can't love one another. We are playing right into the alt-rights' hands, and they are correct in pointing out our biases. Only love for one another can save the day!!!

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

To Jshicke.. you're showing your relative ignorance of human sexuality. I recommend you watch the recent Katie Couric series on Netflix all the way through and you will come away with current, true information on the subject. I now know what an "intersexual" human is and I hadn't even heard the term before seeing the series.. so much to learn and so little time.

Re: “What to do when the director of the EPA doesn't believe in climate change?

Thank you, Jeremy, for your eloquent column. My heart sank when the current EPA head was selected by the the worst, most corrupt polluters and their minions, id est, the Congress, Trump and Bannon. Only the least educated would fail to see the value of laws protecting our planet and they are the hateful ones when you're trying to discuss outcomes of pollution in a rational way. I recall being unable to breathe in France, Italy, Hong Kong, India and Los Angeles in the bad old days from air pollution. The EPA and other countries' equivalent agencies have had a great effect on this issue and even China is beginning to take it seriously. In addition, my recent trip to a reef offshore the Florida keys yielded a brown, dead environment when it was so colorful and alive with fish just 20 years ago. What the hell are we doing to ourselves by going backward - it's madness!!!
