    I always enjoy your posts, David. I particularly like this one, maybe because it would be so unpopular amongst my milieu.
    I helps me understand, or at least question, the way that racism is being discussed these days, which has always felt somehow wrong to me. Also, although the attack on the Capitol was awful, the way the politicians talk about it in sanctimonious terms is grating and smacks of insincerity.

    May I post this on Voices of Humanity, David? I cannot be quite sure, but my sense is that you at least exaggerated and in a couple cases plain got it wrong. Needs a fact-checker. However that is in your arguments. The general case that Trump voters tend to be distressed lower middle class folks and that they and the marginalized working class and poor democrats have a lot in common sounds right to me.
