Trump’s campaign rhetoric has unleashed the racist beast that plagues the socio-political fabric of our nation. That monster is now running rampant and must be challenged. We must also turn over every rock to expose the maggots of bigotry and prejudice that lurk in the mud of ignorance. Now is not the time to surrender. The WAR at home and abroad is, as it always has been throughout recorded history, a combat between civilization and barbarism. Our educators serve on the front lines of battle.
