When I moved to Santa Clarita, I had no idea that it had a council member named Bob Kellar who once stood at a militia rally and declared himself to be a "proud racist."

It almost seems unbelievable, but it's true.

Even more unbelievable — he's STILL on the council.

It happened in 2010, on the corner outside the local sheriff's department.

There was an uproar when the video spread, but Kellar was defiant. He even refused to apologize.

That speech was 10 years ago. Kellar has won re-election every time and continues to be a political powerbroker.

He was a force behind #CA25’s new congressman @MikeGarcia2020 — making a video noting Garcia is “all American” and “supports our president.”

Hear a dogwhistle?

School shootings are always difficult for me.

Always.

When I was a sophomore, just 15 years old, a boy in my grade got expelled for having a hit list.

I was on it.
My ‘crime’ against him? I said no to a date. We’d never spoke before he asked, and never spoke after, and that ‘no’ was going to cost me my life.

The school called to tell my parents about it.

I answered the phone. I never told them.
How could I? I didn’t want them to be afraid that their little girl was going to die for daring to show up and get an education.

I knew they would be afraid, because I was afraid.

I started to beg my parents to move. Let me go to school somewhere else, anywhere else.
