I tried so hard to be open-minded reading this post just dripping with oblivious privilege from someone who seems to have absolutely no knowledge of racism (to people of color, at least). But this is when I gave up entirely. Run that comment by Rakeem Jones. Newsflash: James Franklin McGraw didn’t tickle him.

I would tell you to ask Heather Heyer, but she is no longer with us. You can run this by the other 28 people who James Alex Fields Jr. did NOT just drive by to say “hello" too. Jeezus christ, this is the kind of post that reminds me who voted for the man in large numbers (read: no minority group) and who fakes like they don’t like Trump and will vote for him again. For the record, I’m not buying that you didn’t vote for him initially. You’re defending these “very fine people” a wee bit too much. But if you come from a group that thinks Trump supporters are these kind-hearted, open-minded people, sure, you’re just not going to experience a Trump rally the way they would.
