In a few minutes, if wifi holds, I’ll livestream a conversation at Flemington Borough Council, where a young resident has brought an anti-racism proposal that – so far – the town does not want to consider. The idea was generated after the white supremacist violence and murder in Charlottesville, and after Trump’s statement, which failed to characterize it as terrorism.
Why won’t the town look at this? Because this problem “isn’t local,” says Mayor Phil Greiner.
The Hunterdon Anti-Racism Coalition is here (details in the post below this one), and there are also some children here. They want to know what kind of county they’re growing up in.
