    This wave of blatant public racism is far more recent.
    Blatant yes, but it still was there. It was just in the shadows. Not a good thing by any means, but light is the best antiseptic.

    While I've always liked the phrase "sunlight is the best disinfectant" I'm beginning to think that maybe sunlight just makes things grow faster.

    All light is not sunlight. Trump's light occupies a very specific frequency. Ask Kenneth.

    This is going to sound kind of weird, but it almost looks like Tourette's or OCD. Like they literally can't help it. And god no, I'm not trying to make excuses. I'm just really trying to understand how obviously highly intelligent, educated people can be racists. Are racists. Trump emboldened them, but they weren't sitting there being normal before he came along.

    I'm kind of glad he did though because I'm finding out all sorts of shit I didn't know before.

    When someone totally comes unglued and unloads all the bizarre angry ranting that they normally shout at imaginary people while they are driving. He completely went Schlossberg on that guy.

    Campaign sends mariachi band to office of lawyer who went on tirade
    An online campaign was created in the wake of a lawyer's tirade against Spanish-speaking workers, with a single aim: sending a mariachi band to perform outside his Upper West Side home.

    Attorney Aaron Schlossberg has come under fire for a video that shows him ranting against Spanish-speaking employees at Fresh Kitchen in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday. As the video shows, Schlossberg presumed the employees live in the U.S. illegally on welfare paid by his taxes.

    After he was identified, people shared previous footage of Schlossberg engaging in xenophobic hate speech. They also changed his law office's Google listing to a Spanish restaurant and drove his firm's Yelp rating down.

    ...VIDEO HERE...
    Thanks from BDBoop and Blueneck
