  • Abolish the police quietly so no white feewies are hurt.

    • Yeah you are way behind...I have been posting his tweets since the protesting began. :-) He is a bit hyperbolic but the videos are awful.

        Don't draw attention to it, though. It might spook those Centrist Voters we're always just on the verge of getting.

          You mean the ones that won the House in 2018? Yeah, we can't afford to lose them.

            Near as I can tell black chicks won the House in 2018, but I am all for getting the other type diabetes flyovers too. Big tent.

              Suburban white women won the House back for the Dems. Karen may be an obnoxious, latte-sipping, leggings-loving Basic White Girl, but we need her vote again.

              • Here is an interesting, although probably irrelevant fact.

                In Derek Chauvin's divorce, his wife is listed as formerly known as Kellie Thao. The Hmong cop among the four charged in Floyd's death is Tao Thao. I wonder if there is a relationship there.
                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    That's a funny description of college educated white suburban women.

                      maybe rename it CHUMP?

                        People asked that early on when his wife made a statement about their divorce. Not sure anyone ever found out for sure but I never cared to look.

                            My memory, which has known to be piecemeal and becomes moreso each year, is that in 2018 Republican turnout increased but Democratic turnout increased massively, particularly in black districts and particularly among black women. While I don't remember it being a big deal that white educated women came back home to the Dems, it could have been (and of course I welcome it).

                            I still think the key is a tidal wave of turnout from our traditional supporters plus lefties, to go along with the already high number of '16 voters. Another key is the black vote which lagged in '16 after Obama but then rebounded in '18. Biden is a bit of an improvement over Hillary (as opposed to say Bernie) but Abrams or another young, liberal black woman would help a lot more.

                            • I'm sure if you showed a photo of this man to white cops, 90% would think "thug."



                              About that.

                                Thao is like the name Johnson or Smith. The Hmong people have a relatively limited number of surnames, so you will see a lot of repetition. My Hmong coworker told me that when I asked about two coworkers with the last name Nguyen (pronounced like the English Wynn).
