it will be sustained.

But changing the systemic racism of our nation is so hard.

And as the overt racists come out of the closet, I would say that they make up about 25% of our country. I don't know for a fact, it's just a number. But I think it's more than 10%. It's high enough that I know they will fight to keep their racism, and the best we'll be able to do is push them back into the closet. When I was younger, I thought they would die off. And then the neo-Nazis came, and Dylann Roof came, and I realized that an entire new generation of them had been born.

At any rate, we shall see.
