Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

My first Atlanta white boy "fuck you"!!!

I was driving back from dropping my daughter off at the airport this a.m. on the freeway in heavy traffic when a young white boy on the passenger side leaned half-way out his window and began screaming "fuck you, fuck you" at me, as he raised arms, waving both middle fingers, hanging so far out of the window that my first reaction was watch out, you're gonna fall!

The driver sped off (as quickly as one can in Atlanta's heavy traffic) weaving in and out of lanes so quickly I soon lost track of them. Many other drivers passed by honking, fists up, smiling, and sending lots of love my way - mostly Black drivers, but some white as well.

Once again, I'm struck trying to figure out what about "Black Womyn's Lives Matter; White Silence is Violence" calls for a "fuck you" from a very young, very white, male? Hmmmm
