That one lady's comment is interesting... white people should not even have passports... I think I have officially found the most ridiculous comment I have ever heard on the Internet or elsewhere!

I'll give any white or asian dude $1000 if they enroll and attend one of those Women of Color retreats. Of course you'll have to lie about your race and gender, or at least claim the necessary self-identification.

To receive the award, you must provide video proof of your attendance as well as the reactions of other participants.

$1000 is too little. You should pay the whole cost of the trip.

Black women, White women, same thing. They always defend and enable their men, no matter how deplorable.

Leave it to the internet to normalize the fringes :(

“Violence and hatred is not what we have taught our children; intolerance for others is not even in our vocabulary, let alone our values.”

Do you believe it? I don’t. Of course it comes from the parents.

Racism was always there. Obama being elected inflamed the virulent racists and caused them to crawl out from under their rocks. Trump's ascendancy to office and the MAGA movement gave them a voice and enabled them.

Do you wonder that people who thought they were better off socially and economically are bitter now that the country has taken a few steps backward?

I don't know if "normalizing the fringes" is exactly what the Internet has done, but it's certainly made it easier for them to have a voice.

So Trump calls Amarosa “that dog”.

Oh wow, America has sunk pretty low. And 40% the country thinks it’s normal coming the president.

“The dog” has many connotations in terms of race and sex relations.

I agree... before Trump, there was plausible deniability. Trump has unmasked the deplorables; we now know who they are, even among our friends, acquaintances, and relatives. It’s up to us to just say no.

I am lucky to not have deplorables in my family. But back not in the 60s, what did reasonable people do with their relatives who were racist segregationists?
