"It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say we don't target groups of people on how they look like. We're supposed to stand up to bullies, not follow them. How hard can it be to say that Nazis are bad?"

I miss you, Mr. President

And, of course, all Cheeto Hitler could do was insult President Obama in response. Asshole.

I love this man, best president EVER.

It’s absolutely amazing how much you appreciate the little things.. like just a basic use of vocabulary, literacy, Placing people in your cabinet that are actually qualified. A First Lady that actually loves her husband instead of being repulsed. So much to miss..?

I wholeheartedly agree, Ms. Green Eyes!

DAMMIT---I miss him...his intelligence, his heart, his kindness and his ability to lift us up to be better than we are.

Yes, and the fucking ignorant, racist right couldn't get past the color of his skin.

@balou Did you have any idea how much racist hatred was simmering out there? I did not. And I'm still sickened by it.

@LucyLoohoo Yeah, and it hits home to me. My ex is Hispanic and my kids are of mixed race.

@balou Is that a problem in Texas? It's certainly not an issue here. Now...Kansas, maybe....

@LucyLoohoo it was more so in the late 80's. Not as much now, but racism is ignorance.

@balou I wish we could find a better system to educate people about evolution, culture, etc. SIGH

@LucyLoohoo for that to happen, most people need to become more open minded. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening.

@balou You're right! Tribalism is so deeply embedded in us that, without conscious effort, I don't see how to fight it. Whether it's skin color, culture, language, religion....whatever.....if it sets "us" apart from "them," we usually like it.

Indeed!

Now I am sad. I can not believe we went from this to Trump!

I know, it's sad.

I know, it is like a nightmare we cannot wake up from.

The world really needs him back any way we can get it.
