A Thank You to the People of Color of These Disunited States

During the Trump era (error?), we’ve gotten used to equating the GOP with profoundly ignorant sorts like Lauren Opal Boebert and the Q-Anonsense Shaman. However, the more thoughtful and intelligent of folks still in the GOP—the ones who are in the game mostly for the grift—can read the handwriting on the wall: Consider these stats from Pew Research:

Percent of 6- 21-year-olds who are nonwhite

Early Boomers (1968): 18
Gen Xers (1986): 30
Millennials (2002): 39
Post-Millennials (2018): 48

So, the demographics of the country are changing. And we’re already seeing the results at the polls. In the recent election, the black vote in swing states like Michigan and Georgia and Pennsylvania, was decisive. Because of this shift, states like Texas and Florida and Georgia have already turned purple, for POC largely vote Democratic. There are more of these to come. North Carolina and South Carolina and Nevada and Arizona–I’m looking at you. LOL.

So, people of color of these Disunited States, I humbly thank you from the depths of my heart and soul.

The white supremacists’ worst fears ARE going to be realized. They are going to be pushed aside by MAJORITIES not like them.

And oh my Lord. THAT is a beautiful thing!

    And a dangerous thing. The twilight of the great European Empires produced the Great War and arguably the Second World Conflict itself, and a host of other problems.
