Various dictionary definitions of racism have it all wrong. In fact, they’ve gotten it so wrong over the years, that their failure to correctly define racism has lent itself to the likes of Donald Trump making asinine remarks such as:

‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.’

Because, no matter how much the likes of Donald John Trump try to make racism an issue that’s the fault of “many sides,” by virtue of its systemic nature, racism can’t be many-sided. Nevertheless, those who can’t forget about the fact that the Confederacy lost the Civil War, but demand that slavery be erased from everyone’s minds, continue to come from under the filthy nasty rocks under which they live.

The more people unify and send messages of intolerance of hate, the harder hatemongers work to infect and the more of them crawl out from their holes.

It was in the detrimental, but infectious spirit of hate that John Miska descended upon a Charlottesville memorial dedicated to the slain Heather Heyer, and committed an act of evil that, even during this time of extreme societal division, just doesn’t seem real. Openly carrying his weapon like any good so-called patriot does, Miska slashed Heyer’s shrine.

As shown by Twitter posts that captured Miska’s abhorrent act of ignorance, at one point he can be heard saying that Heyer died “playing in traffic:”


When people called Miska out for the heinous nature of his acts, he was totally unbothered:

Naturally, people were stunned by Miska’s acts:

As evidenced by many of the tweets above, there was outrage about the fact that Miska was permitted to lash out as he did with seemingly no serious legal consequences. Unfortunately for some, Miska’s actions and lack of consequences, along with the events that have taken place since Donald Trump hit the campaign trail, aren’t enough proof that racism is alive and well.

Is this the “great America” people were hoping for?
