There are times when I am completely disappointed in the country I live it. Sometimes I regret using the red, white, and blue on my company’s logo. In this case… our fear and racism that prevents us from doing the right thing and help the Syrian refugees.
I just heard someone on the radio ask why we can’t put the “A-Rabs” into camps like we did with the Japanese. Talk radio callers (like YouTube commenters) are the intellectually low hanging fruit of society.
Either we help people, despite the potential risk, or we stop with the American Exceptionalism.
We also need to stop letting the “news” media baiting us by playing on our fears.
