shooting at capitol building


Obama said the N-word in honest conversation about racism on Marc Maron’s podcast.  Charleston church reopened Sunday, days after shooting.  Thousands walk in ‘unity chain’ march in Charleston, SC.  South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley calls for removal of Confederate flag from state capitol building.


We went to a vigil tonight at the Florida state Capitol building for the victims of the Orlando shooting. It was very emotional, very moving, and very good to mourn publicly with other members of the community. I’m proud of my city, even if I’m not proud of my state. We sang songs and there were speakers and there was a lot of love all around which makes it easier. It’s hard out here in The Deep South to stand up against stuff like this, but I’m glad there are so many people here ready to do it.
