I believe you're correct in that assumption that I, being white, am considered the cause of ALL their problems......what I think is missing in humans
these days, it seems, is the ability to place ourselves in the shoes of others....as a white person, I TOO have had struggles....struggles based on
bad decisions, being poor "white trash" and not having opportunities that having money and a solid family structure can open the door to.....
I think, and my husband agrees in some level, that SOME of my issues I have had in Chicago is that I don't cower when presented with this kind of BS I
encountered yesterday on the Redline. I have learned the HARD WAY to keep my mouth shut....especially when I encounter angry, chip-on-their-shoulder
black women......but I don't walk away either. When being pushed from my seat, I held my ground and attempted to video tape the incident......
Does the fact that I stand my ground make me a racist? (I am just asking in general).
My husband and I had already planned on leaving Chicago....I have now been assaulted 3 times in the past 3 years....one was a sexual assault. After
yesterday's encounter, I have told my husband that I will meet him in the West, (we moved to Chicago 16 years ago from Salt Lake City, Utah), that I
am leaving as soon as I can...for I see a BIG change happening...and I do NOT want to be in the big, over crowded and ANGRY city of Chicago when the
SHTF.....I think it is safe to say that most of us on ATS can feel it coming......
