See ex-Obama adviser's blunt response when asked about Fox host. If we ever needed proof that America does not care about people of color we see it with the Democrats refusal to impeach Trump. If he was talking about any group of White people like he has talked about people of color Pelosi and her followers would be demanding impeachment, irrespective of what Republicans said. They just don't care. We must never forget this and they must pay a price. This once again proves the truth of Derrick Bell's axiom that White America will only act in the interest of people of color when that action benefits a significant group of Whites. American racism is permanent. We have been here 400 years and this axiom remains true. Only a fool would think they will change.

The Democrats are now clearly divided between the Pelosi wing who are nothing but accommodationists of Trump's racism and criminality and the moral Democrats who are standing up against White supremacy. If you oppose impeachment you are an apologist for White supremacy.
