As a middle-aged white male, I cheer Rep. Hortman’s remarks — they were in no way racist. She merely pointed out the disrespect being shown, for women of color, on the part of her Republican white-male colleagues.

The obvious facts that obviously sailed right over their oblivious heads:

  1. They were white men.
  2. They were in the retiring room.
  3. They were playing cards.

When did white male Republicans become such fragile little ❄️❄️❄️?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
