    You Will Never Get Your Country Back

    I have spent much of my time writing for this publication talking about how complicated our politics are. Talking about the dangers of failing to acknowledge our complicated history and the need to be honest and open about how to move our country forward.

    My need to bridge the divide is a product of having spent my entire life trying to see both sides of the argument. Trying to not fall into the trap of absolutes. Refusing to accept that the world we live in exists only in black and white. Doing my best to show my country that we could be more than the very things that separate us. At some point, enough is enough though. At some point, I canít be a consensus builder. At some point, even I run out of excuses and explanations for people who canít even be honest with themselves.

    Iím a black man in America with graduate degrees on top of graduate degrees. I feel just as comfortable at a country concert as I do at a rap concert. My friends look like the big box of crayons and my family looks like the United Nations. I am the walking embodiment of this countryís progress, and Iíll be damned if Iím going to sit by silently and watch us go backwards. The costs are too high.

    Typical liberal hit piece against Trump.

    I especially love the last paragraph.

    Standing by this president makes you an embarrassment to all that is good in this country. It makes you a stain on the fabric of our nation. It makes you the antithesis of everything that your party purports to stand for. Simply put, it makes you un-American.

    This guy can kiss my ass.

    Well since your not black, a Muslim, an atheists or a women, , I doubt you can fully appreciate where the author is coming from.

    This stupid ass says America is for everyone, unless you are a Trump supporter then you are a stain.

    This whole article is laughable.

    Most MM supporters do put party over country. So yep, I don't consider them patriots either.

    Hate crimes are on the rise under MM.

    Well there has never been another POTUS like Trump is...

    Do I really need to go down the major list of all the horrible/nasty/lying things he done - and still some still support him?

    Russia is the perfect example - see posts here all the time about nothing to see here, move along.

    They messed with our election at at the very least - and that should bother EVERYONE.

    I hope Evan McMullin runs for office again. He get's it. He knows how to be conservative and put your country first.

    To most rational people, MM is a total embarrassment. And his proposed policy's would hurt minority and women the most.

    You're completely ignorant about the problems that minorities in the country face. Trust me, I ignore my race.....other people don't.

    It must be remembered that politics and its goals change over time, even within the same party. President Kennedy, a Democrat, establish a goal for this country to put a man on the moon. President Obama, a Democrat as well, established a goal of this country to put a man in the ladies room.

    Wait. Spooky's not black anymore? I could have swore he said he was black at one time. But he says a lot of things.
