The violence in Charlottesville Virginia must not be repeated.  White supremacist groups, and their bigotry and provocations must always be condemned and rejected. Racism is evil; there can be no hesitation to identify it as such.  And some folks need to remember that this isn’t 1865.  In America, we’re all in this together, and have to look out for each other.  We can’t allow ourselves to be divided by the ghosts of our past or incited by the demagogues of the present.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims in Charlottesville.
