'We don't see color,' Trump supporters say as they tell their kids to fear Black Lives Matter

Most of Donald Trump’s supporters don’t think they’re racists. They don’t think Trump is racist, despite his well-documented, decades-long history of racism. And that’s the thing: Too many white Americans have defined racism down to the point where an active KKK member might not make the cut. The Washington Post’s Robert Klemko talked to Trump supporters outside his Tulsa rally last month, looking at Black Lives Matter protesters, and found a series of cases in point—people claiming not to be racist while telling the children and grandchildren accompanying them things about race and anti-racist protest that would not be out of place in a “how to raise a racist” manual.

Trump and Pence are fine with their evangelical base dying, so long as the photo ops continue

On Sunday, Politico posted a story speculating on whether or not Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and the rest of the White House team would have to «reassess» their demands that churches be allowed to hold unrestricted services during the COVID-19 pandemic despite numerous «super-spreader» events now demonstrating that it. Is. Not. Safe. Politico needn't have bothered. Only hours afterwards, Mike Pence was the guest of honor at a Dallas, Texas megachurch rally that featured a choir of 100 unmasked singers and a packed audience even as Texas reeled from skyrocketing new COVID-19 cases. There's your answer, everyone who wasted their time wondering whether Trump and Pence would continue to risk the lives of their most fervent evangelical supporters in exchange for the visuals of crowds cheering them. They genuinely don't care if evangelicals live or die as long as they can squeeze a bit of footage out of each event.

Five times white privilege failed to save these racists in aftermath of George Floyd's death

A white Minneapolis police officer kneeled on an unarmed Black man’s neck for more than eight minutes. The incident, which killed 46-year-old George Floyd, prompted national fury, with protests repeating for days from New York and Georgia to California and Washington. But the well-documented police brutality and scores of similar scenarios haven’t stopped the quiet racists among us from trying to weaponize police against people of color and in some cases, unabashedly discriminating against them.  However, things haven’t always ended the way these racists probably presumed. Here are five times white privilege failed to protect white people.

Soon all Trump will have left is white supremacists and neo-Nazis. That's where the GOP is headed

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've likely noticed that just about every week brings a new headline about a once-reliably Republican demographic group that has now soured on Donald Trump. The catastrophic headlines just keep coming for Trump and GOP lawmakers partly because more voting blocs continue to defect from them and partly because new polling continues to confirm the initial trends being reported.  It's been a little head spinning, but let's take a look at all the groups of voters who are starting to realize what a treasonous buffoon Trump is and have decided they simply cannot cosign another four ruinous years under his leadership.

Jorge Ramos: 'A small group of undocumented young people has beaten the world's most powerful man'

Journalist Jorge Ramos pays tribute in a Univision op-ed to the young undocumented immigrants who, through the sheer force of their relentless activism and courage, both won the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012 and help secure its survival, for now, at the Supreme Court last month. “The story seems incredible,” Ramos writes. “A small group of undocumented young people has beaten the world's most powerful man, Donald Trump, in the Supreme Court of the United States. It was a long battle and, in the end, it was decided by just one vote.”
