20. Race-baiting twaddle.

 

I cringe every time I see a white progressive demanding that black or Latino voters explain their support for Hillary Clinton. Do you not realize how horrible that looks, and how offensive that is, that white people are demanding that people of color justify their choices?


I'm a progressive. As such, I question anyone who isn't a member of the financial elite when they make political choices that are not progressive. Anyone. People of color don't get a pass. No one does. If someone finds that "offensive," then they should realize that I consider being told to apply a race filter to my assessment of political choices and actions to be offensive (and they will be succinctly instricted to go fuck themselves).

Every member of a free and democratic society has the right to ask for a justification of another citizen's political actions (although not the right to an answer...the person questioned has every right to tell them to piss off).
