It occurs to me that without ENDLESS videos on social media of ugly behavior, this would still be us. “Oh, racism is mostly a thing of the past.” And since that ugly behavior is all we see, we STILL think racism is nothing but ugly individual behavior.
from “Racism without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America” by Eduardo Bonilla-Silva – “Nowadays, except for members of white supremacist organizations, few whites in the United States claim to be “racist.” Most whites assert they “don’t see any color, just people”; that although the ugly face of discrimination is still with us, it is no longer the central factor determining minorities’ life chances”

WSJ’s opinion page is generally garbage, but I thought this was interesting:
Mr. Trump’s base of 35% or so will never leave [even the WSJ acknowledges the irrational/tribal diehard base], but the swing voters who stood by him for three and a half years have fallen away in the last two months. This includes suburban women, independents, and seniors who took a risk on him in 2016 as an outsider who would shake things up. Now millions of Americans are close to deciding that four more years are more risk than they can stand.
