24. its not surprising to me

I can easily believe we have 20 million racists voters. We never made the post racial transition in the 60's. It is still there wrapped in a shroud of political correctness.

It became unpolite and unwise to be openly racist. Thus, republicans switched to dog wistle tactics to appeal to that segment of society.

What Trump has done is lift that veil. Bigots are now coming out in the open emboldened by Trump. Heck they even have a front row seat in his campaign.

What we hear uttered every day now by Trump or some surrogates would have been carreer ending a couple years ago. Instead it is now being part of the new conversation..
