Here's an interesting Trump-elect phenomena...Decide for yourself Oh people of Earth.
Stock values for private prisons increased by 45% overnight.
I heard an interesting fact this morning. Trump won 29% of the Hispanic vote. I hope I'm not raising a little female radical but when sometime back I remarked to my daughter that any Hispanic that votes Republican should be horsewhipped, she just smiled. Her stepdad is one such racist, i wanna be a white guy type.
I know the Hispanic mind better than any other and what I recognized long ago is that the demographic that votes conservative is the same strain of 'old white guy' in darker skin. Racist, psychically blind, in denial of personal heritage and desperate to blend into the background so to sneak their way into the 'in' group. Always referring to and reveling in the 'lightness' of their skin while comparing against those that are darker and viewing them as 'indio'. And that same type has always 'looked' down on the black as other at the same time many blacks view Hispanics as others. Obviously, this is not a progressive path to unity. That reality has always been very disheartening to me.
Ross, you made a point about Trump as potentially a great president. Reagan is considered a great president but if one looks back on his unedited legacy one can see that his only true claim to greatness was racism. That's enough for many!
