Prejudice and Racism

Some are saying a failed coup attempt without repercussions is a dress rehearsal. For the moment, it does feel like Trump** may skate on his botched coup. But some things are stirring, which could result in server repercussions for him.
Our democracy has been collapsing under the weight of corruption that accompanies minority rule. The majority should rule and should have their will followed by their representatives. All of the issues listed above are supported by a solid majority of Americans who have been constantly thwarted by the perversion of our elections and government. It is a time for action. It's time to kill the filibuster and do the people's work.
We vehemently bid goodbye to this nightmare of a year, the quarantines, empty shelves of toilet paper, nurses forced to wear garbage bags, and ignorant white people declaring in public places that wearing a mask and sanity is oppression. So, to review the year that never should have been, we offer a selection of graphics that have appeared on PlanetPOV during 2020, in chronological order.
Your religion does not define my beliefs nor our government.
When did the American people decide to stop thinking and become willing participants in the destruction of the Republic and supporters of a wannabe dictator?
He is trying to incite a racial war in America (to Putin's absolute delight). Racism worked for him before and Trump's going to dance with the Klansman who brung him.
Trump instructed his aides to always have Diamond and Silk wear name tags whenever they're around him. "The downside in having black running mates to prove you're not racist is having to tell them apart," Trump nodded earnestly.
Let's say it straight out: Tom Cotton is a racist. He condones slave labor but assigns it no value. He would never have freed a single man, but he would use bigot law to punish anyone who even holds a different opinion.
Why is the president allowed to use his immense public power to attack private individuals out of infantile spite? Have we dispensed with the law altogether?
White Southerners are the most passive-aggressive people in the world and you don't even know when they are still fucking with you. I want to shout at people of color to facepalm themselves for not seeing the codes sometimes.

Weekend Music Thread – Turn the Page

To turn the page on this frantic leaping from distraction to distraction by Republicans because accepting reality is too painful for them, this weekend's music thread is for songs that tell stories (you can serve them with green eggs and ham if you like).

How to Solve the Manchin and Sinema Blockade of the Biden Agenda

Many brave Democrats lost their seats in 2010 for voting for the ACA but in doing so, they saved and helped millions of Americans, past, present and future. What they did was noble and profound, they changed history for the better. Clearly, Manchin and Sinema are not cut from the same cloth but perhaps they can be leveraged to do the right thing and become reluctant heroes in the end despite themselves.

The uniqueness of the GOP being the first American political party to transform into a cult may undercut acceptance but that hurdle needs to be jumped or the existential threat this nation faces from this cult may come to pass.
