Then you might need to do some praying. Or if not a religious type, at least some therapy. In the olden days, we would have considered this type of reaction to point to a deep psychological ailment. Not today of course.
Today, as the national mental health industry pulls in revenues that dwarf many a Fortune 500 corporation, the perspectives we used to call psychologically compromised are now endorsed and encouraged. As I think of the money the mental health industry generates, I wonder if it's not like dentists prescribing chocolate and candies to their patients.
Of course by lynching, I think we only mean blacks who were lynched. Whenever I heard this objection, I get the impression that all those whites, or other ethnicities, who died by such means are of no particular interest. I could be wrong, but that's the impression I have.
Nonetheless, we've encouraged this sort of thing. Our experts, our mental health counselors, our scientists and doctors and national leaders (and some religious leaders) have all encouraged the reaction we see in this story. I don't blame the individual in question. She's merely going where our nation's institutions and leaders have told her to go for several decades now.
And yes, I get that this is happening in Portlandastan, that part of America so far to the Left it barely can tolerate communism. This whole story is the result of eliminating mascots deemed too white and Western - the great Western genocide. But the coalition being formed to destroy the Christian West and its values and freedoms is a shaky one. Even now there are cracks in the walls. Expect these to get worse as the powers behind the Western purge scramble to end up on top of the ash heap.
