Racism. There’s been a lot of talk about racism recently with Donald Trump inspiring a lot of people to let their racist flag fly high. The GOP claims they don’t understand where this negativity is coming from. Bullshit! From Goldwater & Nixon to Reagan, Bush 1 and Bush 2, they’ve taken advantage of the racism that existed and used it to their advantage. This is based on facts! So often people don’t understand why poor, white Americans continue to vote for the GOP. The answer is that the GOP has preyed on the fears and shame of Americans to get their vote…without delivering anything else.
To be clear, I am NOT saying that all Republicans are racist. That’s not true at all. And this is not meant to be a partisan video (although I’m sure many will see it that way). I was just frustrated at the bullshit we’re hearing so I wanted to call it out. Hopefully we can learn from it.
Also, I tried to tell jokes. Hope you laughed.
