There are so many horrendous things buried in the Trump wall bill. The truth: It was designed to fail. It's essentially a bag of poison pills. But McConnell thinks the press will fall for it and blame Democrats for refusing to compromise. And so far, his plan is working.

This is wrong: "white, MAGA-hat-wearing male teenagers remained relatively calm & restrained." Maybe ripping off a shirt, jeering, mocking native music, & doing a tomahawk motion is restrained on Planet White Power. But staring a man down is still aggressive on Earth.

It should not be the job of people of color to teach whites about how to not be racist, and people of color are not props for white racists' absolution cosplay.

Every single border member of congress — myself included — opposes the wall. Every. Single. One.

Their sin wasn't ignorance. It IS *ongoing* *active* hatred. They do not deserve forgiveness.

If a group of Black kids mobbed anyone like this, I guarantee you they would be in handcuffs right now, they would be referred to "thugs" not "boys" & people would be demanding jail time not expulsion from school.

Please don’t tell me Covington is an outlier in bigotry. Our Second Lady Karen Pence started work this week at a private school which openly bans LGBTQ students - and students who condone that lifestyle - and staff.

My main opposition to the wall is that it is a waste of government time, money, and resources as well as being a rallying crime for racism and bigotry. However, if the democrats can vastly expand voting rights, I’d say do this. It’s not like the wall is ever going to get built.

These kids are from Covington Catholic High School. The school encourages this type of behavior. See their blog post about abortion protest “March For Life”

Econs are (1) overwhelmingly not black, (2) know few (if any) black people, (3) accept cultural deficit models for blacks, and (4) work in models in which race in meaningless as in there is no space in theory to allow for racial experiences to have import.

It has a single charge range of up to 300 miles, great handling, very good driver assist features, a nice entertainment system, and best of all, it’s not made by an unstable egomaniac who might implode his own company any day now.

They should. I have one of the cars pictured, a Chevy Bolt, and it’s great.

So six years is the sentence for second degree murder if you're a White cop who kills a Black teenager in Chicago, because the judge has to "take into consideration all the feelings" & sees "pain on both sides."

When Pence's wife is doing is disgusting. It's no different than if she took a job at a racially segregated school. And people should view it that way.
