Racism is one of the nation’s most serious problems.  Some blame President Donald Trump but racism was here long before President Trump.  It’s easy to sweep the issue under the rug but then incidents like this occur.  Terrorism is serious but we also have problems on our home front.  How can we protect America if we are not united?

Heather was 32-years-old.  She was killed by James Alex Fields Jr., a 20-year-old from Maumee, Ohio.  He drove his car into anti-protesters at the rally.  Fields is being charged with second degree murder.  The case will be very interesting.  The protest was chaotic and he could argue that he was in a state of panic.

I hope the videos that show James driving his car into the crowd of people are removed because they are gruesome.  I think he was under the influence because his conduct was extreme and outrageous.
