On November 7th, 2012, the day after Barack Obama’s reelection, a cowardly anonymous writer posted some racist vitriol. Not unusual in America. These particular words circulated the internet for years, attributed to various people like Franklin Graham.
I’m embarrassed to admit that one of my extended family members sent the quote to me. It was his reactionary response to what I saw as the positive changes and hope rippling through our nation. I was both pissed off and acutely aware that any reply to my white relative would fall on deaf ears. So, what did I do? I framed them and highlighted a better message! Read the whole quote, then read just the yellow words.
