San Francisco, Let's 'Go High' This Saturday in the Face of Hate (and Here's How)
Let’s collectively go above the fray...and not feed into their culturally corrosive narratives.
Sometime last week, word broke loose that the San Francisco would (grudgingly) be hosting a “free speech rally” at Crissy Field that, without sugar coating it, is expected to emphasize hate above anything else. It’s likely to be a racially charged, homophobic, all around far right-of-center gathering in our otherwise proudly progressive metropolitan.
Well, guess what? We’re not having it.
We at Bob Cut foster inclusivity and the notion that every human—be it a he or she or non-gender-conforming heart-beating individual—has the absolute right to be who they are and practice what they believe. We should be able to walk down the streets, hand-in-hand with the person we love without fear or anxiety or any inkling of wrongdoing. Pray to whatever God we want; worship along to whatever lines we find most fitting. However, an act of individuality does not, nor ever will, put any one person above another.
Hate is not something to be tolerated or fertilized; it cannot grow under the warm glow of love and light.
So, gang, we know you want to speak your minds and stare these fear mongering luddites straight in the eyes—but don’t. Rid them of any echo chambers and present eyes and ears. Let their chants and meanderings fall to the wayside of boundless grace.
And here’s where you can do just that: surround yourself with ever-loving Bay Area locals.
