It just seems so much easier [View all]

for a lot of white folks in REFUSAL (because they are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay past the stage of denial) to either scapegoat POC and others on the grounds of

A) "Identity Politics" or

B) Those (relatively few) POC and LGBT that voted for a Ku Klux Klan-endorsed candidate.

Anything...ANYTHING but to blame the folks that look like (or may be) your parent, sibling, spouse, or neighbor

No one is saying that that there were not multiple factors that led to Clinton's loss...

But to pretend that "economic anxiety" is a sufficient reason for those that voted for man that campaigned on policies such mass deportation of Mexican immigrants, reviving stop and frisk, banning Muslims from entering the country; a man that received the endorsement of a white supremacist terrorist organization...to pretend that none of that even MATTERED or that wasn't a major part of his "sales pitch"...but..."economic anxiety"...as if other groups of people aren't going through economic anxiety.
