Now I have to play James Baldwin and say, "Awwww, why are you so nice to people who HATE YOU!" The GOP isn't "extremely difficult." They want you to die. They want you to go away. They want you to stop existing in their perfect world of White Christianity. That's why they put a foot down every time doing the right thing comes up before them. And we know exactly where that foot comes down. On peoples' necks.

Now, if they were in power, they would toss breadcrumbs our way as some token of proof that they cared about us. And many of us would Praise The Lord and Sing Hallelujah and vote for them as a result. This is how it works. Always has. And damnit, always will.

Why? Because they leave us terribly uneducated RIGHT FROM THE GETGO. Which is the point and they know it.

Most of the Democrats--at least before the party became Progressive recently--knew it and worked that way, too.

Time for you to read The Fire Next Time perhaps.

Oohhh. Have not felt so POSSESSED in a long while. Must be that Halloween SPIRIT catching up to me!!!
