In our minds the warning signs don’t live in our neighborhood

“I said this after Columbine and no one listened so I’ll say it again: white people live in an utter state of self-delusion. We think danger is black, brown and poor, and if we can just move far enough away from ‘those people’ in the cities we’ll be safe. If we can just find an ‘all-American’ town, life will be better, because ‘things like this just don’t happen here.’”
