When this election began, I was like millions of millennial men: a "Bernie bro" rooting hard for Sen. Sanders. Watching the candidate of my dreams get s...

I was waiting for Clinton's smile at the end, but they didn't include it.

Madness.

Money quote follows:

And when you say “racism is a thing that millions of white bureaucrats and schoolteachers and neighbors quietly accomplished in hundreds of ways, from realtors who quietly refused to sell to black buyers in good neighborhoods to the zoners who didn’t bother to build highways leading to black neighborhoods to fussy neighbors who are more willing to call the cops if they see a black stranger in their neighborhood because black bodies are always coded as a little more threatening to policemen who have also inhaled that stereotype that black kids are older, stronger, readier to do violence, and so shoot a little faster when the face they’re looking at is black,” they’re baffled because there’s no Guy.
There’s just… people.

What white people are all too often unconsciously seeking is The Guy To Blame For Racism, just like we seek out The Guy Who Founded Our Country and The Guy Who Freed Our Slaves and The Guy Who Stopped Racism.
They want A Guy. They need A Guy. They can’t make sense of history without A Guy.

And there’s no guy. There’s just millions of people who have this pervading, subconscious, unexamined opinion about skin tone and how it affects color, and they made – and make! – quiet decisions because of assumptions they’re not even aware they’re making, and how can that possibly make sense when George Washington woke up one morning and knocked down a cherry tree to yell, “I’MMA FOUND A COUNTRY!”?

Madness.

And I’m always reminded of that Kids in the Hall sketch where they announce they’ve found the Cause of Cancer, and they drag Bruce McCulloch onto stage, and he hems and haws until someone goes, “Tell him, Bruce,” and Bruce sheepishly says, “…I’m sorry I caused all that cancer.”
As I watch white people struggling with the idea of racism somehow still existing after Martin Luther King solved it, I've seen this belligerent battle the commenters have while discussing racism with baffled people of color. Because the question people always seem to have lurking beneath all ...

I think the analysis is a bit weak. People think racism is no longer a thing because it's a lot more subtle than it was back in the 50's and earlier.

What on earth was that? For 90 minutes, we watched one candidate for president display the seriousness the office demands while the other did what was once unthinkable: show up unprepared for a globally televised job interview. The first presidential debate between reality-television star and wealthy builder Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was mind-blowing. Trump brought the vaudeville shtick that worked for him in the primaries to the main stage and bombed.

Sometimes letting loose, while totally immature, is all you can do.

Quote:

And so I’d just like to say to that portion of the electorate: Fuck you. No, seriously. Go fuck yourselves. I’m not gonna waste any more time trying to convince you that you’re about to do something you’ll regret forever. I’m not gonna show you old clips of Trump saying rotten things. I’m not gonna try to ANNIHILATE Trump by showing you records of his hypocrisy and greed. I’m not gonna link to a John Oliver clip and be like, “THIS. So much this.” Nothing’s gonna take down Trump at this point, so I’m not gonna bother. No no, this post is for ME. I am preaching to the sad little choir in my soul here.

Because while Trump is a miserable bastard, YOU are the people who have handed him the bullhorn. YOU are the people willing to embarrass this nation and put it on the brink ofeconomic ruin all because you wanna throw an electoral hissy fit. YOU are the people who want to revolutionize the way America does business by voting for its worst businessman, a disgusting neon pig who only makes money when he causes problems for other people instead of solving them. YOU are the thin-skinned yokels who clutch your bandoliers whenever someone hurls the mildest of slurs at you (“deplorables”), while cheering Trump on as he leaves a bonfire of truly hateful invective everywhere he goes. YOU are the people willing to overlook the fact that Trump is an unqualified, ignorant sociopath because DURRRR HILLARY IS BAD TOO DURRRR.
Drew Magary wants a word with anyone who's about to be on the wrong side of history.

So entertaining :-) People think that elections is the time when well respected and responsible citizens get to make important and well considered decision... haha Its actually the time when even illiterate hillbillies get to troll the entire country ... and it looks like its working too!

No matter who gets in, im sure by the next election people would regret it :-).

Really good food, no frills, find your own table service. Fish and chips, fish tacos, ceviche, were all superb. Kids loved the clam chowder cup and fish sticks. Everyone wins.

Very cool shop. I needed an 82mm lens cap (not the most common size) and they had it. Also had an r-strap in stock to replace my broken one. They definitely saved me from taking the rest of my vacation pictures with an iPhone. Very friendly and no nonsense staff.
