Thank you, Sam! My husband reminded me this morning that the Germans actually thought we were too mean. They were going to use our one-drop rule for slaves for their categorizing of Jews, but decided that one-drop was excessive. They stopped seeking out Jewish people with less than a quarter. But the whole concept of a Jewish blood count came from us. We have been a powder keg for a long time because of our racism. My deepest hope is that our country will finally dig deep, heal its wounds, and turn its back on any possibility of fascism. Because the truth is that if we let things go bad, it is only because “good” people let it happen. *Most* people are not authoritarians.
