“In the aftermath of the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, many of our Facebook and Twitter feeds were inundated with posts that ranged from fury to despair to heartache. But as Senator Kamala Harris expressed on Facebook today, we all need to actively prove that we truly aren’t a nation defined by hate and bigotry.
“To some Americans, this was shocking and scary. They asked themselves how could this happen — in the United States of America — in 2017?” the California senator wrote. “To other Americans, what they know is, Charlottesville exemplifies an undeniable reality that lurks just beneath the surface in this nation we love.”
