    Been there. When You couldn’t afford to pay the water bill and they shut it off you take a drive with empty gallon jugs to the nearest gas station and sneak into their bathroom that had an outside entrance and fill up as much as you could.

    The system is corrupt. Systematic racism is alive in 2021.

    I have a shared well. And the old neighbor shut it off for almost a year. When he was forced to sell i got my water rights back. The new neighbors are so nice and told me I will never deal with that again. I dont understand how people can be so greedy. Im truly thankful for these new neighbors.

    And yet you have a president that cares more about immigrants and their rights than the Americans that he supposed to stand up for

    We should go there and take selfies and give them things they neither want or need to make ourselves feel better. Share those white traditions you know
