I like this:
"almost as many Europeans are in this country illegally by overstaying their visas"

What the hell is that even supposed to mean? ALMOST as many as who? Also is that supposed to be a comparison to people who are just here illegally? Kinda sounds like some CNN/kos reporting, just a hint of reality tossed in to imply one thing w/o saying anything at all.


See how that is different.

Or take mass shootings. The majority of mass shootings in this country are committed by white males. Yet, the right wing ignores the numbers and use the Atlanta shooting by a black man as their go to shooting over and over and over.

I commend you Tris. You brought attention to a topic that deserves further study knowing that you would be verbally persecuted for merely trying to form a more perfect union. Sir, you are a gentleman and a scholar.
You to comrade. Care to respond?

A picture of Maxine Waters angers me. Listening to her angers me even more.

I do! All they proved was, that people of a certain race will gravitate to other people of their specific race. That is not racism. People tend to gravitate toward people of their own race because they have more in common.

The effect was much more pronounced in people who voted for Trump.
They showed that too.

It is tribalism, a natural human trait but for some reason or another these days it is racism if the person openly displays it if they are lacking the acceptable amount of melanin. So weird.

I have more in common with people who have common interests, politics, ethics, spiritual beliefs and friends than I do with the color of our skin.

Sounds like your friendships are fairly petty and shallow.

You have a lot in common with someone because they're white?

Whew.

You don't understand the concept of degrees or proportionality, do you?

The support of Nazis.
The reduction of health care coverage.
White Supremacy.
The destruction of the economy.

Are those the things that attracted you to Trump?
