Racism and bigotry isn't some mysterious specter that we haven't figured out or we are in the dark about.
Racism and hate continue because white people let it happen. Wether it is because of fear or shared values, white Americans _always_ make space for hate. Nothing in American history galvanizes white people like hate of Other.
So instead of being angry with thuggishness of Trump, white folks feign SHOCK when two POC women speak the truth.
