@rickhasen  I agree with many of the criticisms of Biden but I am aware most Dem primary voters don't really share those objections. I don't know what else to say!

“I’m voting for the tax cuts not the racism” isn’t a thing. It’s a package deal.

White people insisting their European ancestors came “legally” during a period where the US had open borders and didnt even require immigrants to learn english is one of the dumbest and most harmful myths guiding our current politics.

Robert E. Lee was a traitor, a brute and a slaver who wouldn't even trade black union soldiers taken prisoner for the lives of his own men because he saw black people as property to be owned.

"You don't have freedom of speech at your job", is weird for an admin arguing businesses can refuse gay customers on free speech grounds

MLK on the theory that somehow advocating for equal rights turns people into white nationalists

I personally saw Ferguson police use crushing force against protesters for much less than what the Nazis in Charlottesville are doing today.

It's telling that resentment towards wealth in sports is always directed at black athletes and not the vastly wealthier franchise owners.
