Budapest protest November 2014

While on a trip to Budapest I noticed a very significant number of guards, especially around the parliament building.

The cool thing about this city is that others will join you when you question their ignorance and racially charged decoration. Just because it’s still widely adopted in many southern states doesn’t mean it’s okay.
