Best analogy I've seen so far

OK, I'm a sci-fi geek, so that might explain why I find this quote relevant to today's headlines:

Astronomers can't see black holes directly. They map them by their event horizon and their effect on nearby stars and stellar matter. We can't see yet what's at the center of the Trump/Russia black hole. But we can tell a lot about its magnitude by the scope of the event horizon and the degree of its gravitational pull, which is immense.

It's happening elsewhere

My two thoughts about this video:
1. The current xenophobia is not just an American phenomenon. More violent than elsewhere, perhaps. But to learn that the Parliament in Denmark -- of all places -- approved this action is saddening to me personally (because I have an adopted Danish family who are people of color), and disheartening to see this madness spread around the world.
2. Why don't we use video and social media to put faces on what the current administration and legislature are trying to do here?

Your thoughts, please.
