Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


 

“First — and this cannot be said enough — Clinton and Trump are not equally bad candidates. One is a conventional politician who has a long record of public service full of pros and cons. The other is a demagogic bigot with a puddle-deep understanding of national and international issues, who openly courts white nationalism, is hostile to women, Mexicans and Muslims, and is callously using black people as pawns in a Donnie-come-lately kinder-gentler campaign.”

–Charles Blow, from a Sept. 22 column, “The Folly of the Protest Vote.”

    I’m just waiting for the comments of he’s disrespecting “the flag”, “veterans” and “the country” from a bunch of people who themselves didn’t really care about until a Black Man made you notice him and now you’re upset. (half black but it wont matter to most people just as it don’t matter with Obama. ANYBODY darker than “stereotypical white” is automatically black)
