  1. This is one of the dark periods of US history. I don’t say the darkest because I know what’s happened before, but this is bad.

    Alien Sedition Act (1798)
    Dred Scott (1857)
    Black Codes (1865/66)
    Jim Crow (late 1800’s)
    Plessy vs Ferguson (1896)
    Japanese Internment (1942)
    Trump’s separation of asylum seekers and illegal immigrants from their children (2018)
