Now I'm sure my local hometown readers already know this, but for those of you who visit this blog from different areas let me fill you in. Here's a run down of where I'm from. I grew up and live in Martinsville Va, an extremely small city with not much to offer. It used to be well known for its manufactoring companies, but since majority of those have shut down it's so difficult to find a job here now. In a nut shell, it's no telling what might go down here these days because there's no work which is causing an increase in the crime rate.
With that being said, it was recently reported on our local news station that the KKK would be hosting a rally in one of the area's parks on April 2nd. Supposedly they are going to be lighting a cross as well. First of all I swear I didn't know the KKK even still really existed or did these types of "marches". Just a few days ago, I saw on Facebook where someone has started another rally that will be marching against the KKK. I'm sorry, but I know I can't be the only one blown by this O_O… Here it is 2011 and violence is still happening due to race and backgrounds?? When there is so much other bs going on around us like lack of healthcare, lack of employment, rise in gas prices, etc. #wheretheydothatat… Booth (one of the people I get to help me with the blog) aka @TWlTTERWHALE who is also from my hometown wrote a "Letter To Martinsville" that I thought was worthy of a post. This comes right on time with everything going on in this city. Check it out below!
SN: If this were YOUR city would you stand against the ignorance and march against the KKK?? Let us know!
