    There is “systemic stupidity” in this country. It’s called the Democratic Party and their mainstream media lapdogs.

    This is nothing more than a democrat power-grab. The country is NOT “systemically racist”. If it were, how did we get Obama, TWICE? Why are MANY brown people knocking/kicking the immigration door down to get here? These are the democrat’s militia. Also, the white liberals want to feel good through virtue signaling…I’m virtuous because of my help of the minorities as they are victims of something they can’t control, their skin. This does nothing more than make minorities take the victim-hood position, giving up their power to the liberals that want to take care of them through government control. DON’T FALL FOR IT. Take back your power!!!
