How Much Does Racism Cost? With Tonight's Vote, Over a Trillion Dollars

With tonight's vote, Congress is about to give a huge tax cut to the rich, which gives the top 1 percent the return on investment they were banking on when they plowed millions of dollars into Republican elections. Yes, they are raising taxes and cutting benefits for the poor and middle class. Millions of people will lose their healthcare. Yet, Trump did get what they bargained for, validation by the President of their racial superiority. They have a man who will validate their prejudices that societies ills are caused by minorities, immigrants, women in the work force, gays, etc.

And what is the value of that false sense of superiority? Apparently, it is priceless. It is worth more than one's health. It is worth more than keeping one's daughters safe from a pedophile. This is the price of hate that we are now paying.
