“I voted for him, and he’s the one who’s doing this,” Minton told Mazzei. “I thought he was going to do good things. He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.”

White Americans keep telling us they don't give a shit about a healthy nation. They just want to hurt people they don't like. That has been most prominent motivation for the white vote since the country was founded.

There's another piece linked in the article that talks about how white cruelty is the point of their political efforts. Read this shit:

"The president’s ability to execute that cruelty through word and deed makes them euphoric. It makes them feel good, it makes them feel proud, it makes them feel happy, it makes them feel united. And as long as he makes them feel that way, they will let him get away with anything, no matter what it costs them."

I know people call my thoughts on white American culture 'controversial', but it just is what it is.

White people are not motivated by fairness, healthy communities and cooperation. They just don't care. Not even about themselves.

Asking us who do to negotiate with this culture to find 'common ground' is like asking a drowning person to be patient and hope water stops killing them.

White Americans would rather die than cooperate. Attempting to 'negotiate' w/ insanity is pure fucking nonsense

And I don't want to hear any self serving, weak ass whining about how 'complex' racism is in America.

If we're talking about why America keeps going from crisis to crisis and we can't agree the main factor is generational white resistance to morality, civility, reason and reality itself, then keep your bullshit to yourself.

Progress in America is so hard because white people _hate_ progress and have always worked against it.

White people aren't part of the problem. They _are_ the problem.

@Are0h Gotta love those sweeping generalizations.
As though "white people" are some kind of monolith.
In every struggle for racial justice there have been "white" people of conscience on the front lines, being called "race traitors" and worse. Your lovely polemic won't erase that history and is hugely offensive.
Those "white people" in those articles don't fucking speak for me or for anyone I agree with or respect.

Those people arent considered "white" thus being called race traitors. The white concept of whiteness is deeply seeded in racism and colonialism. Im not going to put words in his mouth but im guessing hes talking about your shitty dad that says "is it me or is it dark in here" in a crackerbarrel when he sees a PoC eating but brags they voted for Obama.

I'm with Are0h here. I've never met you, but a suggestion? Before you say more of the same, maybe consider that leading with the exact sort of "white lives matter" framing that cop-lovers and bootlickers do, just in reference to the left, probably wasn't the best place to try to start a conversation with someone you've never met -- and no, i'm not calling you a bootlicker or cop-lover, fellow worker
