Doc || Welcome to Leith

Shocking does not begin to describe this documentary. Growing up in rural parts of the south I have witnessed and experienced my fair share of racism, but watching this documentary opened my eyes up to a whole new realm of thinking. Welcome to Leith tells the story of how Craig Cobb, a white supremacist tries to take over a small North Dakota town. It sounds so outrageous it kinda sounds made up. This is a must watch. What this shows is how these racist ways of thinking are taught. We are not born hating, we are not born discriminating. We are taught to think that one race, one gender, one sexual orientation is better than an other. We are responsible to teach our children other wise. If we teach our children to have compassion, to show kindness, to show respect for one another that's the world that we will create. Young people follow by example. We must set the example for future generations follow.
