At the risk of making people's heads explode, I met a woman the other day who's pro-life but can't stand Mike Pence and hates the whole pro-life movement. She educates women on options other than abortion, but never tells women to NOT seek an abortion. Amazing how people don't always fit into a box. It's almost like human beings aren't robots.

What I don't understand is how or why anyone who wasn't racist would vote for Trump. Even if not everyone who voted for him is racist, Trump himself sure as hell is. So how could someone against racism support a racist and his racist policies? Doesn't supporting someone like that, and his policies, automatically make you racist yourself? So just because someone who voted for him says they aren't racist, their actions (voting for Trump) say otherwise.

Living your life in extremes, where all people of a certain demographic are exactly the same isn't helpful for anyone. If you can't even acknowledge that, that's a problem. But it's America in 2018, so I guess I expect nothing less. Why use critical thinking skills when you can find like-minded people on the internet who validate your beliefs, even if they're skewed and full of generalizations?

As much as the right gets accused of cognitive dissonance, there's plenty of it on the left. It's ok to acknowledge things that challenge your rigid core beliefs.

My grandma is racist as hell and loves HRC. She's also all for feminism, as long as it's for white, non-trans women.

In response to a confession. Wtf are you even talking about? Not passing sweeping generalizations about entire groups of people has nothing to do being polite. I can't with some of you.

My DH's family is very conservative and they all say "people of color just need to get over it and stop acting like they aren't equal to whites now because they are." The ignorance just shocks me. They must not realize the systematic oppression that people of color have suffered since the beginning of this country's history. My FIL claims that no one discriminated against blacks for housing as late as the 1990s. But it still happens to this day. The guy down the street from us is a landlord--he owns 3 houses on our street and rents them out. And he refuses to rent to people of color because "they don't pay their rent". SMH. He just never indicates that that was the reason he rejects them as tenants. And people wonder why racism is still alive and well.

Racism is going not going to end just because we all make an effort to be more polite, you know that right?

JFC people get their knickers so twisted over any implication that the majority of white people are racist. If that weren't the case, white supremacy culture wouldn't be a thing, and we would have true equality. People get more upset over any suggestion that someone might be racist than they do over actual structural racism. Yes, I believe that Trump voters are racist. Our society and major institutions are also racist. Full stop.

In response to a confession. A study showed that a higher percentage of racists voted for Trump, but racists also voted for Clinton and Sanders. More racists voted for Clinton than Sanders, but if you think allll the racists voted for Trump, you are mistaken.
