American Blues: In a world with so much to lose, Americans need to hold true to our diversity and hunker down for four long years

http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/charles-blow-eloquently-expresses-anguish-felt-many-about-president-elect-trump  Read Charles Blow's column who expresses what so many American's are feeling. After eight years of a humanist, loving, inclusive President, this man vows to undo all of it. Don't worry we won't be put back in all our advances of diversity. Is it too early for impeachment?

I had been experiencing "shock" after "stun" since the election. I've learned though that this reaction is actually a privilege. As a white, cisgender, straight, woman, I haven't experienced this kind of nazi, racist, kkk, hatred and discrimination. I was naive. I am learning that this isn't a shock to people of colour, LBGTQ communities, etc... who experience racism or discrimination both (overtly and covertly) regularly. We can't be naive. We can't be "nice." We have to take a stand and resist this hatred!!!
