This video made its way to my FB account today.
What started off as a campaign in favor of Bernie, turned out to be a mob of the worst kind.
The video speaks for itself.
Yes, it does.
I couldn't watch the whole video. After a week Trump finally got around to disowning the endorsement of David Duke:
"I don't know anything about David Duke, OK?" Trump said on CNN's State of the Union. "I don't know anything about what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I don't know."
The Donald claims to be ignorant of the blatant racist appeal of his "dog whistle" rhetoric, but he's perfectly willing to accept the votes that it brings to his campaign. In a way I'm glad to see these people taking off their hoods to express their poisonous bigotry because that shows how much more work we have to do to make America understand that Black lives matter. Brown lives matter. Muslim lives matter.
I expect that it will take us at least two more generations before we find some sense of equanimity and every time I think about it I remember this scene from Bulworth:
I'll also say this: civil rights era teens white and black had to put up with one hell of a lot more than this kid has. If she gets strength, then she should continue on in the political arena.
JW, one question: Why has this bigotry persisted among poor white uneducated Americans for over 150 years?
i think we both know, jmac
today he said "all lives matter, got that? all lives matter."
racism has grown so much worse under obama. a whole new generation bred to be racist, because a black president outraged the closet racists to bad they came out of the closet, and found out they were far from alone.
trump makes me sick to my stomach.
Someone should have trained her to hang up politely but firmly when someone starts that kind of thing. You can't stay on the phone for hours listening to that sort of thing.
