The ‘Tops’ Tragedy

I was just watching the news and saw interviews about the tragedy at a TOPS store. I didn’t catch the entire thing, but I did see the interview. I can’t fathom why someone would go after a group of people simply based on skin color. In reality it’s happened for a long time. Also based simply on race… and more.

My grandmother was Italian and this weekend I was just reading things about the laws that affected Italians in the past. One of America’a largest lynchings took place in New Orleans and was the lynching of Innocent Italians. We see one group going after another over and over.
