Quick note to LINCOLN CITY RESIDENTS. I was a member of the lc community page. I commended the lc police department for defending the innocent black family that was terrorized by white supremisist criminals on a lincoln city beach. I suggested that this was an opportunity to dhow their outrage for this bigotted criminal behavior. Not one comment supporting these victims who were visitors to lincoln city to enjoy God's beach. Rather that showing any support against bigotry and racism so rampant in trumps america.....i was accused of being hateful anf was removed by the administrator. Lincoln city has only 1% of it's population black families. Judging from the reaction of this lc fb group of white residents i can only imagine the discrimination those black families are experiencing in their daily live. Total lack of support in the aftermath of a racist attack in Lincoln City. That is just so sad and so telling.
