I was at a peaceful vigil in Portland Oregon the day after a protester had gotten shot in the leg.

During the open forum an elderly white woman told a story of how she was walking down the street as a car approached. Young white men stopped and started yelling at her about how they were going to grab her by the pussy. She said she never feared walking in her own community and now she understands why everyone is fearing white america because now she fears all unfamiliar white men.

My mother is disabled. The hateful rhetoric of the office where she works and the place where she lives has physically caused her pain. Her conditions have flared up and she’s not doing well. One of the women in her office told her that she couldn’t vote for Hillary because she “doesn’t dress like a woman.” My mother also wears pantsuits because of her brace. I am so worried about her health.
