    Her stylist was making the sort of "uh, huh... yeah" type of comments that someone makes to placate a client. There certainly wasn't anyone clearly agreeing or engaging.

    I agree with you, Gustogirl - it's troubling that this sort of racist-fueled anger can be sustained. I "credit" Faux News with continuing to fan the flames and keep their viewers in a perpetual state of anger and paranoia.

    However, as someone who has gone through periods of anger and resentment, it's really not fun after a while, and as you see your friends, family, colleagues, and eventually, total strangers avoiding you.

    It takes a LOT of emotional energy to maintain that frown, and while one may not feel like smiling, the energy could be put to many more beneficial uses.
