  •  This whole discussion reminds me of the (6+ / 0-)

    line in Norma Rae:

    "I never had any trouble with the black men," Norma tells him. "Only trouble I ever had in my life was with white men."
    The two people over my lifetime who physically assaulted me (one a molester when I was about 11, the second was a rapist -- unsuccessful, luckily for me -- when I was a young women) were both middle-aged white men.
    If I were to profile people to be afraid of based on my personal experienced, it would be middle-aged white men.
    Of course I'm married to one of those and he's never attacked or harmed anyone in his life (except when he drives me crazy with his irritating habit of singing along to a well-loved song but getting the words all wrong).

    While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
