Shabbat Shalom to everybody, everybody but…

To Dylan Roof who sat in a church bible study class for over an hour, with peaceful librarians, pastors, a track coach and an aspiring rapper and then opened fire killing 9 of them. Apparently he wasn’t listening.

To any real racist psychopathic killer who is thinking of doing the same thing.

To Hillary Clinton for indirectly blaming the Trump campaign for heated rhetoric that unhinges people like Roof.

To the black guest on Fox news who blamed Fox news for the killings.

To President Obama for saying the following. We don’t know the facts, and then proceeded to speak about the facts anyway.

To President Obama who never misses a chance to call for gun control during any similar tragedy to the exclusion of everything else.

To President Obama who only gets angry, indignant and speaks out immediately when it is African Americans who are senselessly shot while asking for calm, patience, and understanding when Muslims at army bases open fire killing dozens of soldiers.

To President Obama who apparently thinks that gun control is critical to keep weapons out of the hands of criminals except if you are Iran who is trying to make nuclear weapons then it is okay…

To Heinz ketchup for linking their QR code on their bottles to a porn site. I guess it gives people something to do while slowly pouring the ketchup … anticipation.

To John Kerry for saying the following. “We are not fixated on Iran specifically accounting for what they did at one point in time or another,” Apparently John Kerry has been gazing the ketchup bottle from his wife’s company instead of reading about Iran’s cheating on the interim deal.

To online craft marketer Etsy for banning spells being sold by witches. We have not been able to reach Etsy for comment since their phones and electric have been on the blink.

To some Belgian doctors who are euthanizing patients without their consent. I think that in this country they call that …. Murder.

To Kim Jun Un of North Korea who has claimed to have cured AIDS, SARS, EBOLA, and MERS with a single ‘miracle drug’ unless of course this is true …

To Elwood D Watson Professor of history, African-American studies and gender studies, East Tennessee State University for penning an article for the Huffington Post with the title Rachel Dolezal, and the Complex Politics of White Privilege Which makes perfect sense …. To him. Dolezal (NAACP head in Washington) was able to pretend to be black because of White privilege. Or was it that she wanted to be black for black privilege. She sued Howard University because of race claims. Howard University is traditionally a black University because of prejudice because she was white. So she was white, sued a black college for being white, and then turned black and …… I give up.
This proves that race issues are nothing but shades of gray …. I think.

To those of you who read this instead of doing something, anything, even remotely more productive, I wish you a Shabbat Shalom . This, especially to the families of the murdered at the church in Charleston.

To those who I have mentioned and to those who I have not (you know who you are)

NO SHABBAT SHALOM FOR YOU
