    the unpopular neighbors get left out of the helping.  The brown neighbors, the gay neighbors, the radicals, the secularists, or  . . . well, you get the idea.

    •  nope, not my experience. (0+ / 0-)

      i just mentioned people all over the political map doing this.  that straw-man won't play.  it may be shocking to some, but there are americans who take care of their neighbors no matter if they disagree with their neighbors' politics or belief systems.  

      i do it, the people i spend my time with do it, and it is just how we live life.

        in my experience.  My community is neither so charitable nor so egalitarian.
