Not hating them shows amazing spiritual maturity, I think. But the whole incident, if you just pull back as a third party observer, is curious.
Why? Is what I wonder. Just why. Are white men, beginning at boyhood, so easily threatened? What in the hell are they so afraid of? All this because now they had to compete with someone unlike them…someone I suppose they had been taught to believe was inferior.
You had to be put in your place…and you were. Given the numbers…your path of least resistance was a smart move. Had the numbers been larger the dynamic would have been different and the result would have been war. At that micro level. I know. I’d lived through such an experience.
