On World AIDS day, a reminder that HRC had a plan to usher in an AIDS free genereration

whereas Mike Pence enabled an HIV outbreak in his state spurred by public health cuts and his stance against needle exchange. People who try to tell you that Democrats and Republicans are just the same, it does not matter who is in power, are lying.

No, they are not just exaggerating or mildly distorting the truth. They are lying.

With the exception of a brief detour into Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s (R) anti-abortion beliefs during the vice presidential debate on Oct. 4, the night centered around foreign policy, not public health.

It’s a shame, since lackluster public health efforts are what led to the defining moment of Pence’s one-term Indiana governorship: a massive HIV outbreak spurred by public health funding cuts and Pence’s moralistic stance against needle exchanges.

A timeline of the HIV outbreak, the worst in state history, reads like a roadmap of what to do if you want to create a public health crisis.

Prior to the Civil Rights Act, Democrats used to have some of the most virulent racists

in their party. After the CRA passed, these racists slowly moved on.

When some white men start saying things like 'we need to ditch identity politics' the rest of us begin to wonder what Democratic party are you trying to build?

one whose motto is 'stronger together' or one that attracts the white working class while pushing every other working class person out of the door?

People need to think more carefully about the type of coalition they truly want and who they are willing to shove out for it.

1964 was not that long ago.

This was an election about identity politics: white identity politics

to see so many supposed liberal white men then turn around and state that identity politics do not win elections, is really laughable.

They do win election. In fact just did win an election.

I suspect a lot of these 'no more identity politics' people, are just against the rest of our identities taking center stage or having equal voice.
