A phone call last evening. I thought our talk proceeding normally (current events, ongoing nasty strife in USA), when Susan suddenly angrily proclaimed, "I wish the Native Americans had killed every White settler!" We do have a near Native ancestor, but this wasn't the basis of her outburst at all. Shocked me. I sat there a bit slack-jawed. Murder cannot be justified. Yes, I know the history of this country's creation. She went on to talk about a Native who'd been taken to England, used as a slave there, who somehow was brought back to America -- where he was willingly friendly and helpful still. That he should've NOT been kind and forgiving. I have NO idea who she is talking about or where she got this information. So I'm (sitting in stunned silence) thinking "WOW...how far off the deep-end have Whites gone in this country???*" To wish murder upon others, two wrongs make a right. What happened WAS terrible. Now we're in 2020. Terrible again. It'll be even more terrible (imo) if all is truly lost; all that (unjustifiable) suffering ... for nothing. I've recently quit Twitter for similar attitudes. I'm like, "Well if YOU want to get killed, attacked, beaten up, etc., for what's gone on in the past (and to some extent the present)...be my guest. I don't!" I don't hate myself nor do I embrace "Collective Guilt." I'll answer to God on Judgment Day for what I alone have done -- not for what others have done. My sister's words troubled me throughout the night. She does have emotional issues, and I'm doubly concerned for her mental state as tensions & guilt induction ramp up. She also has the burden of caring for our mother and her disabled son (also has a healthy and supportive husband with a good-paying job, thankfully). *I reside in a Latino neighborhood, in a small city that's 48% Latino for 27 years.
