The featured image for this blog post is a sign that says “Jews are not wanted here.” There are many other signs from that period of time when it was perceived as being “politically correct” to actively persecute the Jews. From history we all know how that populist persecution turned out. We must all remember with open eyes how this kind of persecution started and how it grew.
If you observe persecution call it what it is even if you disagree or hate the one(s) being persecuted against, ignoring it enables it and it will bankrupt your moral character.
Now apply what you’ve learned without bias.
