    I didn't realize you'd made such an assertion.

    And I can't really say how we compare on a global scale. I'm sure there are other countries that are racist as fuck too.

    But we sure as hell haven't gotten over it, and Coates draws some pretty clear parallels between the racist backlash against black politicians during the Reconstruction era and the racist backlash against Obama today.

    I would highly recommend his new book to anyone who's interested.

    Racism is like a cancer. Very hard to deal with and of you ignore it it will rapidly spread..

    Several women have claimed that Roy Moore attempted to initiate sexual contact with them when they were under 18 years old, the youngest being 14 at the time that Moore kissed, groped and started undressing her. Moore was in his thirties at the time, which was ~35 years ago.

    Maddow ripped him (and the Alabama political establishment) a new one if you have access to MSNBC.

    Here's one way they're gonna react: https://www.mediamatters.org/video/2...he-said/218503

    So far we've got:

    - Morally Reprehensible
    - Morally Reprehensible "IF TRUE" (how you gonna prove it!?)
    - It was consensual so it doesn't matter
    - Mary was a teenager and Joseph was a man
    - "Who Cares!?"

    The party of Family Values everybody.

    Typically when they're baseless (or if you're not an idiot) you deny them.

    Roy Moore hasn't made a single public statement about it, but word is he called up Breitbart to push the liberal conspiracy angle. Believe that if you want but they published in a flurry ahead of the WaPo articles dropping.

    Their 'family values' has always been astonishing. I honestly wonder, if they merely dropped that crock of shit, if they would see a net increase in votes, or if they'd lose enough bible thumpers for it to hurt.

    Conservatives from Alabama like to fuck kids. Their brains havenít fully developed yet so they canít see through the complete fiction these people believe is a real philosophy and not the evil, anti-american bullshit it is.

    Iím surprised it wasnít his daughter or something.

    we're not going anywhere because we never started from the basis that shit like that is not okay if you're part of the elite. that assorted Hollywood "personalities" is currently getting crucified for this sort of behaviour is a anomaly that will eventually fade into the background and things will go back to business as usual.

    Hopefully it actually matters, but (R) in fucking Alabama... I'm not getting my hopes up. He's already saying it's all lies made up by the media even though the woman is a republican who voted for Trump.

    This is a really good, really uncomfortable read. Coates doesn't pussyfoot around racial issues. He does a really good job of breaking down the 'economic anxiety' angle, especially pointing out that it really wasn't 'working class' voters who put trump in office; it was whites.

    But we as a nation would rather grapple with economic issues than racial ones, so that's the narrative that's been put forward, even by the 'liberal' media.
    It is really good and it is really uncomfortable. He completely and meticulously demolishes the "Trump was elected by the working class" carnard. Trump ran on being a racist, was elected because he is a racist and continues to be supported because of racism. I'm not saying that's the whole story, but that's the basic plot. All the other stuff is "and I guess maybe [x]?" subfactors.

    Oh and in all probability, he'll escape punishment for betraying his country because of racism as well. That part is going to be fun to watch.
