Calling your political opponents racists and bigots doesn’t impress anyone who doesn’t already…
Memphis Blues

Calling out people like Trump who espoused the birther crap a couple of years ago didn’t help. The GOP succeeded with a strategy of defining Obama as The Other, not like us normal Americans. The people who bought into that rhetoric of hatred are the same people who called my grandfather a Wop. That may not be racism if you define it narrowly as someone in a sheet screaming the N word, but it’s in the ballpark and it doesn’t belong in modern day political life.
