When a university professor, a filthy bigot, insanely rants hate speech insulting women and minorities, actually babbling idiotic nonsense, how does that affect a seventeen-year-old girl, a freshman in college, who is a child by law?
No attempts by any of the other officers to have Chauvin remove his knee from the neck of Floyd,
Last night we saw a glimpse of a police state where Americans were all seen as the enemy. Where the press was seen as an enemy of the state, the very thing Trump has been pushing and that is also the sign of authoritarian domination. When all people and the press are treated as threats to be crushed in the name of "security", when the police and military dehumanize the public and press, democracy hangs by a thread.
White Supremacist Ideology – let’s call it what it is -- is a creation of people who chose that designation for themselves, then created a legal, scientific, and social framework to normalize it.

That is very different from picking the candidate most likely to beat Trump and best bring change to the country.
