My bad. I didn't express that in a constructive manner.
I do not exactly question your racial bona fides, but honestly racism is so pernicious I am sure there are times I don't see it and I engage in it without real awareness.
If we can just get people to think racism is wrong, I think a lot of these problems will get better.
But we have countless media outlets feeding as much racism and QAnon as you could ever want.
We must hold public officials at all levels to a minimum set of standards.
For my money, the way to do this is to have the United States join the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
But that too seems like an impossibility. This is the type of thing Democrats should focus on if they want to maintain control of Congress. Really show these Trumpers that a majority of Americans do not agree with them.
"No doubt they'll maintain their erroneous believes in private, but the rhetoric will be no longer as public as it has been."
Well, my assessment is that that's exactly what has been going on this whole time. Until 2016, when Trump told them it was okay to go public with it. I've been hearing this kind of talk my entire life, and acutely from the GOP if you listen to what Lee Atwater explained so famously. So, we shouldn't be okay with just waiting for the next Trump to make it okay again.
That's why we have to get people to think racism is wrong.
But it's a hard sell. The problem we face in this country and this economy is there aren't a lot of better offers knocking on the door. Take a Trumper your age, you think they'll "change teams" and go to school to get a STEM job? Leave behind their friends and family to start over, which has a lot of leaving a cult mechanics tied up in it. I know many people who'd like to move but just can't pull themselves away from their family ties. Then one day you turn 50 and you realize it's never happening. And it's those immigrants and liberals who took those better jobs that you never tried to get.
