The shocking news of the murder of the Reids makes one aware of the incredible amount of racial hatred in this country. The Reids obviously are a mixed racial couple. This is probably and the most likely the irrational reason behind this heart-breaking murder. It is heartbreaking for friends and family to lose parents and friends at any time in any way but in this manner, it is particularly sad and savage. It is certainly hoped for that the Hampshire police will find this vicious assassin and lock him forever and throw away the keys. It is pure guess work to believe that this is a racially motivated murder but somehow that is what comes to mind when you look at pictures of the couple. It is just another example of the deep racial divide in America. It is having a disastrous and destructive effect on our nation as a whole and then in the end could destroy our democracy.
