    ...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.

    ...amazing at how consistent this person is with their preconceived stupidity. I get it now (even though you've said it before). This has to be the best fun EVER! --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

    ...the largest problem with all this is, again, the ties that Trump and his admin have with Russia are financial, and because we have effectively legitimized capital as a governing principal, all that may actually happen is that "Citizens United" might have to be removed. Might even be the reason why Trump didn't divest his business holdings. Not at his own direction of course. --mdrowe00

    Relics are not monuments, and our disappointing inability to understand that has inevitably enabled someone like Donald Trump...and may well cast those who align themselves with him for whatever reason in the most abhorrent of lights. I guess it really is "...death before dishonor.."... --mdrowe00
