I included this video in last night's post, Newspaper commenter: “Get rid of all the n****rs, the spics, the kikes and the wops.” I added it because writing that hateful racist pig's words was so painful that I needed something to get his ugliness and ignorance out of my brain.
But the video deserves a post all its own because it's just that good, just that beautiful, and just that poignant. The concept is so touching, the fantasy so stirring, the vision so heartfelt... I dare you to not tear up:
Why couldn't it have been like this? (Rhetorical, we all know why). Imagine how we as a country could have benefited from these heroes and others whose lives were cut short by people who were as toxic as the deranged bigot in my post.
Imagine a world without hate. Just for a moment. If you can.
Big h/t to AMERICAblog's John Aravosis for the video.
