70. I agree
And the whole "I've seen the same thing happen to me in the workplace" meme is weak sauce to say the least.

As a child I've always been told that I have to be twice as good to be seen as half as competent. Nothing about this current election cycle has disabused me of this notion. The idea that people (especially those claiming to be long time Democrats) would vote for the Republicans despite the shithole that they've put the country in, for another 4 years of hell instead of voting for someone who's clearly thoughtful and put a lot thought and expertise into his plans because the man is black shows that what I've been told as a child hasn't changed one whit. It's pathetic. And the extremes to which people, including Democrats, go to in order to make excuses for this behavior is absolutely disgusting.
