    Black people have institutional racism in their favor e.g. affirmative action. They 're only after more of what they already have: preferential treatment. Why is nobody ever pushing back against the kind of pseudo-intellectual nonsense pushed by jumped-up nobodies like Claudia Rankine?

    The only racist is Claudia, she feels the need to make everything about race. I made it to 8:00 (time wasted)

    Lies and Liars abound because they have only 'opposition' to run on…openly. But, Socialism attempts it's last hurrah in America under the banner of "hate Trump". 2016 was your wake up call. 2016 was their wake up call, but they can't/won't hear. Therefore, the insanity will be MORE intense after the election because while this time they DO see it coming, STILL there is NOTHING short of flat out cheating that can be done about it! NOTHING! Get your kleenexes ready o communists/'democratic' socialists; YOU WILL NEVER exclusively RULE AMERICA…EVER!

    No you Muppet if Biden gets elected it will be a camel Harris presidency. There will be no democracy as it will become a 1 party country with 3 extra states and a packed supreme court. You lot still didn't accept the last election and already you are cheating this one with postal votes. Seems anyone votes non democRAT the vote is found in the creek or the trash. Don't know how anyone can vote democRAT with a straight face. They are professional liars to say the least with no care for anyone but themselves in the swamp

    ❤️❤️ For those interested, here's a dose of Biblical/historical truth:


    *John 3:16-17
    [16]For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    [17]For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
    *1 Corinthians 15:1-4
    [1]Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
    [2]By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
    [3]For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    [4]And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. ❤️❤️

    Wow. I'm just a couple of minutes in and holy cow is this incredibly biased! Yikes! To be clear; I don't fall on either side of the political spectrum, being determined to vote neither for Trump nor for Biden…so I'm looking at this from an outside perspective…and wow! The bias is like a brick over the head. Can't watch any more. Awful.

    It's a dangerous time everywhere. The cycle has moved on from cooperation for the greater good, to every country for it self.
    It's the 1930's all over again..
