They Don't Care!! As long as he keeps the Brown, Black and the "Other" people out of the US

It doesn't matter that he is a corrupt, misogynist, racist, sexist, rapist, bigoted, homophobic, insane, traitor, little turd of a human being.

All they care about is he is singing their tune, They hate the fact that America is becoming a homogenous country filled with people of every race, creed and walk of life. Where the White Anglo-Saxon men and their families will no longer be the dominant force in America. They want it to go back to the "Good Old Days" when "Men were Men" and Women knew their place. Where you could stand in a grocery store check-out line and not hear someone speaking a foreign language, or walk down a street and not see a woman in a hijab. (Although those WASP folks sure did make life miserable for my Irish and Italian grandparents)

They are frightened because pure white Americans now account for 60% of the US population and will drop below 50% by 2045. He speaks to them. Their bigotry, their racist feelings and their fears. It doesn't matter what else he says or does. As long as he is out there protecting their "Way of Life" he will always have a hard core of 38-45% support. I don't think any indictments, or impeachment will ever change that number.

The US will become ‘minority white’ in 2045, Census projects

With alternate immigration scenarios, the whole United States is projected to become majority–minority sometime between 2041-2046 (depending on the amount of net immigration into the U.S. over the next 35 years). Ethnic minority children will be the majority in the entire United States by 2019.

1. A lot of them are scared of these changes as we all know. I just wish folks could be honest about

it but it's easier and 'safer' to express hatred and intolerance than being honest and vulnerable.

2. The sad part is that there are so many

I mistakenly thought we were a better country.

4. I think many of us thought that. That those sentiments were isolated to a few areas of the country

or within hate groups. But he has given them permission to come out of the shadows, to show their ugly side.

3. I worked with a guy for many years, same approximate pay grade and frequent interactions. In all

those years I liked the guy and never heard him say anything inappropriate regarding race. Finally, I was in my 17th year and he was in about his 25th. He announces his retirement and says he is moving to Idaho. Curious, I asked him what made him decide to do that. His response really surprised me. To paraphrase, he just did not want his teen daughters to be hanging around people of color. That was the only response he gave. A few months later they packed up and off they went. I had no idea that was the person I had been working with for 17 years. I'm sure we all know someone similar.

5. Yes I'm sure we do. I certainly do and it makes me very sad.
