Imagine racial insensitivity in the White House after 2020 and beyond. It is likely, assuming one of this moment’s top three candidates wins.
Barbaric populations enslave, torture and kill individuals on a basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and more. We see it around the globe. Civilized countries work hard to avoid critically judging and punishing people for immutable traits.
If that were not true, people in the United States would not be on the defensive when called out for racist, potentially racist and even slightly insensitive comments involving ethnicity, nationality, religion or race. If the American people generally approved of racists and bigots, they would tell ethnic jokes in the workplace without fear of social and professional reprisal.
