    about racism "not existing" is wishful thinking. They really HOPE these new kids are blind to the affects of racism (white kids mainly. nobody cares what the black/Latino kids say).

    It must give a person a HUGE headache trying to reconcile "post racial, colorblind America" that the young white folks think exists with the fact that these same white millenial kids support LGBT rights in numbers that indicate that a revolution is going down. lol

    Silly old GOP. They do that to everybody. Blacks are the REAL racists. Nancy Pelosi is the REAL political dinosaur. lol Oh, please, Grand OLD Party. Go sell that bullshit somewhere else.

      what young blacks & Latinos have to say.  It's more like the privileged whites cannot imagine anyone would feel anything for them but admiration.  It's just like the jocks & nerds in high school...  All the "cool kids" can't imagine they might be resented for bullying...  Everyone wants to be them!
