Most people would argue they are not ignorant or certainly not making a choice to be ignorant; however, most of our Facebook feeds would disagree. We share stories we have not verified because they support a belief we have. We know almost all news sites and many websites are prone to “fake news” or spinning a story to support their narrative and yet we eat it right up. Then we spread it to our family and friends in an attempt to be the first. Dr. King warned us about this over 60 years ago as did many others throughout history. Take the time to become informed on the facts of the story and not just on how it makes you feel. When we drive with our feelings, we allow them to forge our realities.
