NOT in MY Backyard

I’m disgusted. I need to do something, SAY something. Get ready — this is an unedited, uncensored, angry Jody rant.

A flyer delivered, presumably, by the KKK, to homes in Chilliwack, Mission and Abbotsford.

The message:

“Yes, white lives do matter. We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”

This flyer is a hate crime and it should be treated as such.

“The note came in a clear plastic bag filled with rice, presumable to weigh down the package so it could be tossed from a moving vehicle” says the copy on the Global News Story.

I hate hate. I tell my child that hate is a swear word, it’s at the root of all things bad. Terrorism is hate. War is hate. Abuse is hate. There is no place for hate in society.

You want to argue that it’s freedom of speech??? Comment below.  I will argue until I’m blue in the face that this is an example of what’s wrong in our world. THIS is why we have a planet that is rooted in ugliness when, in fact, we are a tiny speck of dust hurdling through space….with so much beauty and diversity to be celebrated.

WE ARE HUMAN.

Skin colour should not matter, and absolutely should not factor in to being a member of the human race.

This disgusting find in the suburbs of Vancouver is a symptom of a massive problem bubbling under the surface of our society.  If WE don’t stand up, halt it……we are no better than the costume wearing nightmares that burn crosses and tell humans to head to the back of the bus.

I’m white. I’ve never felt the sting of being judged simply by the colour of my skin. I know, entitled white girl. BUT THIS IS ME SAYING THAT I HATE HATE.

I want to scream in anger at these people who pretend to represent ME and my WHITE CHILD.

F*ck you. Seriously.

Whoever dropped these 32 packages on the doorsteps of My Fellow Canadians, STOP BEING A RACIST IDIOT. That’s not who we are. It’s not who I am and it’s certainly not who I want my child to be.

In the end, as I calm myself down from the prickly-heat, want-to-throw-up, rage that this story sparks in my soul…I want the authors of these awful notes to know — I pity you.

I PITY YOU.

You are a sad and twisted example of what’s wrong in the world.  You are the terror.  Look in the goddamn mirror. See that white face? You are the problem.

End Rant.

    Please note. I do not think rice is part of the diet of the KKK. THINK ABOUT THE SOURCE OF THIS HATRED. Let us not give press attention to these false and nameless
    energeries, they thrive on it. Good evening to all.

      I’m not sure your message is being received. We should remain silent on this topic? Or should we flush out the racist propaganda creators and have authorities put a stop to it?

    One landed in my mail box last week…. it was the most disturbing thing I’ve ever come home to.

    Thanks for publicly saying what a lot of us think, but we are taught to be respectful and not pick on that poor soul who hates them-self. As a First Nation man with two intelligent and beautiful Aboriginal children I have heard it all. But as Rory Mcilroy said on the weekend, yell whatever you want, it only strengthens us. You cant waste time on losers like that, otherwise i would be in a dust-up every weekend defending those who cannot defend themselves. Our teachings and strengths are deep, don’t waste your precious time on those uneducated fools. Teach your child how to love everyone. That’s how we handle bullies and wanna-be bullies.

    Darrell – great words of wisdom. You are right, of course. My anger, as a “privileged white girl”, comes with being painted with this idiot’s brush. I want these racist idiots to know that they DO NOT represent me — and tossing flyers like this at doorsteps is, IMO a crime.

    This is why I love you, Jody. I couldn’t agree more. I worry so much that the man trying to become president in the US is giving permission for all this hate to become normalized. We have to be louder. Keep ranting. <3
