“I voted for him, and he’s the one who’s doing this,” Minton told Mazzei. “I thought he was going to do good things. He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.”

White Americans keep telling us they don't give a shit about a healthy nation. They just want to hurt people they don't like. That has been most prominent motivation for the white vote since the country was founded.

There's another piece linked in the article that talks about how white cruelty is the point of their political efforts. Read this shit:

"The president’s ability to execute that cruelty through word and deed makes them euphoric. It makes them feel good, it makes them feel proud, it makes them feel happy, it makes them feel united. And as long as he makes them feel that way, they will let him get away with anything, no matter what it costs them."

I know people call my thoughts on white American culture 'controversial', but it just is what it is.

White people are not motivated by fairness, healthy communities and cooperation. They just don't care. Not even about themselves.

Asking us who do to negotiate with this culture to find 'common ground' is like asking a drowning person to be patient and hope water stops killing them.

White Americans would rather die than cooperate. Attempting to 'negotiate' w/ insanity is pure fucking nonsense

@hex As every other culture in America has learned not to vote for racist en masse, these are just excuses.

White Americans are the only ones voting for these policies to continue by their unrelenting need to have bigots in office, who in turn continue to pass awful and destructive policy.

Your vague assertion ignores that constant. And that’s just a cop out.

@hex No, actually I'm not. American history is very clear on this.

You can think whatever makes you feel better, but it is well documented that white Americans have used their political power to elect bigots, regardless of their moral standing.

LOL, if people are 'alienated' by talking about historical truths about our society, I'm fine with that.

Well, I think identifying the problem is a big step toward solving.

If that hurts your feelings, oh well. Go cry to your bigot friends.

@Are0h Think what you want. I'm telling you what I've seen, not what people told me.

Sure, some white people have caused a lot of problems. That doesn't place blame on white people who were not complicit, but it sounds like you want to anyway.

And you are welcome to blame me (and anyone else who is actually on your side) for things I didn't do, but it won't help. It will only hurt your cause. (Personal experience.)

@hex LOL, I know you are. That's the problem.

Ha, not even close. It's not about blame. It's just history. You're talking it personal because you think I'm talking about you, even though it wasn't directed at you. You need to grow the fuck up.

As I had no idea who you are until stumbled into my mentions, the idea I'm blaming you for anything is absurd. Ha, if you want to be a victim do you.

LOL, and you have no idea what my cause is so have no clue what helps or hurts it.

@hex LOL, again, not even close.

As I said nothing to you directly, that mean you want to be included in that despite how you protest. You should probably investigate that need to victimize yourself.

And the thing about media is that it's a two way street. I am very clear about what I mean, regardless if you want it to mean something else. And if you are really that unclear, you could just ask like a rational adult.

But no, you'd rather throw a tantrum like a child.

That's funny to me.
