    The classism in this country exists precisely because of the racism instituted to undergird it. Difficult, it seems, for white people to understand or accept this. You're not dealing with one without accepting that the other's existence depends on it. --mdrowe00

      Thank you. Thinking about this makes my mind go into wish list mode... "I wish people would just understand that..."
      "I wish folks would entertain the idea that..."
      "I wish that folks could realize that until they actually walked a mile in someone else's shoes they don't know that..."

    ...the candidness on display from Hillary Clinton now is what may have been enough to get her elected. She has always, in political terms, been more-or-less-manufactured...and genuine humanity from her (in most any setting) seemed to be an afterthought. What Mrs. Clinton needed to show more people was that she was a person. Might not have been enough...but it would have damn sure helped. --mdrowe00

    ...Tamir Rice, all of 12 years old, made the mistake of playing with a toy gun in a Cleveland Ohio park...and paid for it with his life. And people on this board found ample reason to blame him and not the policeman who shot him dead within 10 seconds of arriving on the scene. What a tightrope black people have to walk. --mdrowe00

      There was also Brock Turner, who raped a girl but didn't get a harder sentence because of his potential 'future'. Lots of people don't seem to be too concerned about the potential future of kids like Tamir Rice

    I read this article in its entirety on "The Atlantic”…Ta'Neshi Coates is a mesmerizing writer. And his general sentiment is the one that most black people have in this country. It's why white people can casually dismiss "white supremacy" while agreeing with the advantages it has brought them in our society. Sometimes, black people have a hard time figuring out who their white friends are. --mdrowe00

    ..exactly. Black people, for instance, don't always want to have to deal with nationalists, for example...but pretending they don't exist or talking about how small their numbers may be just serves, as we've seen, to embolden them. There's never a good or convenient time to stand up to things that are wrong...except at the moment they reveal themselves. --mdrowe00.

    Facts that are presented outside of the context within which they are gleaned are most often times sophisticated lies. Gotten to be kind of a thing in this social media driven, everybody's-a-reporter know-it-all-know-nothing society of ours. --mdrowe00

    ...well, as long as we still have elections, we'll have our chances. Time to get serious about voting at state and local levels. The Federal Government is a reflection of state governments. --mdrowe00
