I created this painting in collaboration with a black friend of mine to create unity and get others to find humanity in people we disagree with. It's a long story. The local CBS and ABC station even did a story on my positivity. Everywhere people are saying great things except not here in my town of Northampton. Here the exact opposite. Someone stole my sign and bragged about it. Others threaten further thieving actions if I put another one up. Things have gotten so bad the police patrol my house because my family feels safe. Untrue rumors are being spread I am a white supremacist and a member of a pact to convert liberals into Republicans. Never mind I am a registered democrat and some of my best friends are black. All this flase asumption started with my local paper getting the story wrong about me and the assault on my character and threats of physical violence ensued. it has not stopped for over three years now. Ths story goes back to 2016 in Redwood City CA walking my daughter home from school. My wife and I tell the real story not the one you hear from the paper, social media or word of mouth.
