    Yeah that's interesting

    It would also be interesting to see responses in a counter-thread of people explaining why they didn't vote for him but now would. There must be at least a few such people, right?

    I guess this:

    From education to foreign policy he has done absolutely nothing but cripple the systems that people rely on in this country.
    Explains my sentiments on Hillary. I guess Trump has crippled American FP, which is good for us brown people, because, well, [hush voice]you guys are the evil empire[/hush voice].
    acket.

    Hopefully the ideal of all men are created equal can be applied to the entire human race across all national borders...

    Trump's mailing list actually sent out an email telling people they should wear masks. This would have been more useful months ago, but it's a start.

    No. Miss me with that bullshit. That's not an argument I bother listening to.
    Anyway, I know you won't listen, but I do hope that someday you'll realize the difference between the black establishment and the powers of the real establishment... and how politicians like Biden and Harris are powerless to resist them.

    For sure Biden and Harris will be infinitely more qualified and better than Trump, no argument there.

    However, in order to make BLM, we will be needing better politicians in the future. For now, we can only hope for Biden and Harris returning us back to status quo. I'm sure most of us will be glad to be returning to status quo for now...

    Crazy Sad that it took a pandemic to open their eyes to the bigotry and racism espoused by the Trump administration.

    All I, and a lot of black/ brown people see is "so, before COVID you were ... ok with the kids in cages, the mess in Puerto Rico, Betsy deVos fucking up the educational system, etc etc etc, but since this shit affects you and yours, NOW you care?"

    Part of the response to the statement "What a tremendous burden it must be for you to still be defending Donald Trump."

    That line even goes so far as to contradict itself by not including women or intersex people.

    And yes, I know it was written in 1776 and back then inclusivity wasn't really the same then as it is now but times have changed and using that archaic phrase to support your point kinda doesn't wash any more.

    To this day, I still don't understand how there wasn't more outrage about our internment camps for brown kids.
