It is safe to say that America is more politically divided today than it has been in many a long year; and that this divide is becoming ever more virulent. Unlike the party politics of the last two decades, these disagreements are spilling out from their designated arenas and into our private lives and cultural spaces. Some view this as a triumph, for do we not desire a politically active and involved populace?
Well, some of us do. Others of us would just like to get along with each other and get on with our lives. Should those people be forced to engage; or to have their cultural spaces infected or destroyed by politically motivated action? This issue becomes of special concern when it impacts those in already marginalized communities.
