Brandon Stanton’s Open Letter
Brandon Stanton, in an open letter to Donald Trump says:
“I’ve come to realize that opposing you is no longer a political decision. It is a moral one.”
Mr. Stanton is the man behind the popular photo blog Humans of New York. He sees it as his mission to let his subjects speak for themselves through words and images, without imposing his own political or moral judgements on them. In a recent Facebook post, he made an exception, and called out Presidential hopeful Donald Trump for his campaign of lies, fear and hatred:
“You are a man who has encouraged prejudice and violence in the pursuit of personal power.”
His open letter is brief (about 300 words) and worth your time to read. His main point is that Donald Trump fails the test of basic human morality, and is therefore not fit to be President of the most powerful nation in the world. You may recall Pope Francis making a similar observation about Mr. Trump.
