Last night I attended a candlelight vigil for the victims of the car-ramming terrorist attack in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Here's the news story (I'm the guy in the blue jacket with the Panama hat applauding behind the loud guy):

Anti-hate vigil held at RI State House in solidarity with Charlottesville

It was a mostly white crowd, and peaceful and relatively quiet. The tone was a bit self-congratulatory about how non-racist this bunch of white people were, and the state of Rhode Island by extension. There was a bit of ideological enforcement, along the lines of intersectionality and "safe spaces". largely by college kids who didn't seem to understand that public events held in public spaces aren't as amenable to ideological enforcement as are university campuses controlled by amenable administrators.

Hm. I went to one too. (No congrats needed. Others organized it. I merely attended.)

Black and white, young and old, all mixed together yet holding signs with a similar, simple message. No ideological enforcement to be found. Didn't notice any self-congratulation either. Hm.
