  •  This is a wonderful diary... (7+ / 0-)

    and I had very similar experiences with a young man named Daryl Macadoo.  He showed me the racism that surrounded me at home and at scholl was unfounded.  I have been thinking of writing a very similar diary regarding the tea party people.

    I believe in what Dr. King said as quoted above:

    Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
    -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    I believe that is what we must try to reunite this country again.  I know many good people who follow the tea party that are just misinformed and frieghtened into their rightwing beliefs.  The only way to stop this cycle is through love and understanding.  What many of these people are saying may be terrible but the people themselves are often caring, loving people.  We need to reach out to those people with love and understanding.  

    It may not be as satisfying as rubbing their nose in their ignorance but in the long run, we may end up eradicating some cultural hate by kindly showing them the err in their ways.
