AWD sends his deepest sympathies to the people of West, Texas after the explosion at the fertilizer plant that occurred last night. More than a dozen Texans were killed and many more injured in the massive explosion which has decimated the small town between Dallas and Waco.
AWD often stops in West during trips to Austin. The town people are largely of Czech descent and the town is famous for its pastries known as kolaches. AWD makes a habit of buying at least a dozen kolaches for my family (mostly myself) in West whenever I make the 3.5 hour trip to Austin on bidness.
What has shown through the death and destruction is the goodness of the people of West and surrounding areas. Many put themselves in harms way to help the victims. Immediately after the explosion, neighbors organized to help victims and their families. There was no looting nor crimes, just good people helping others. Again, they showed the goodness of rural Americans in time of crisis.
Sadly, some found joy in the suffering of others. A black Arlington, Texas guidance counselor named Karon Wright was fired after posting the following:
“It’s amazing how the “whites” get angry when Obama speaks. Oh well….it is most of the whites who is getting blown away. So they will soon be wiped from the earth. Lol.”
That benevolent statement in terrible English was written by former Arlington, TX school guidance counselor Karon Wright. A true humanitarian. She was fired after posting that disgusting statement.
Remember, Texas was the recipient of thousands of black New Orleans residents who were left homeless after Katrina. Even though crime skyrocketed after the relocations, never did you see such vitriol from Texans as you did from Karon Wright.
A few years ago, AWD wrote an article entitled “The Hard Truth: Blacks Hate White People.” AWD would like to thank Karon Wright for proving the veracity of my post, in the most despicable of terms.
It is amazing how Americans can find joy in the suffering of others. Humanitarian Karon Wright managed to do so.
I pray for the families affected by the loss of life and property in West last night. The tragic event will affect the small town for years to come. But the explosion showed the goodness in some and the hatred in others.
Our country is truly divided. I admire and praise the goodness of those who showed kindness and curse the hatred of the disgusting trash like Karon Wright.
