When the Mob Comes

quote [ People want to attribute the hate to one thing, one moment, one time I messed up, one story I filed. I think people do that because they want to feel safe. They want to think it will never happen to them. If you can blame me somehow, then you can distance yourself from it all. ]

Seems to me that hate is a luxury item that people can’t afford when times are bad. But as society gets richer and people have more time and resources to spend on hobbies, hate is an option on the table. Racists are just train spotters with even poorer dress sense.

“We don’t agree politically,” the FBI agent said, “but no one deserves this.”

I hadn’t said anything political to him except that I was a single mom and I was being threatened. I left more scared than when I went in.
