Gah, if you see white boxes behind the cursive text or anything looks cut off, please refresh as some of my code got messed up.

The other white faces or the rainbow ones?

So far your highlighted blocks only speak to two extreme faces. (Only one in the first edit.)

Well there are only two viable choices for president right now and they’re pretty extremely different. The second one doesn’t strike me as extreme at all, unless I was raised by radicals and didn’t realize it.

white people are still the majority in the U.S. and control most of the levers of power.

They will be the majority ethnic group for most of the rest of this century as well. See Here:

Perhaps 5% of your assumed Whites think like Block 1. I hope at least 10% are in Block 2. The rest are barely aware of the game in any detail. They want to make the house payment and the Steelers to make the SuperBowl.

For another adjustment, stop thinking of Hispanics as inherently non-White. They have, and maintain, their own spectrum. You are mixing race, religion, ethnicity, and social/economic class unworkably.

In the end you are describing Good Guys and Bad Guys, which is itself a mixed and shifting muddle.

I would hope that more than 15% are paying attention, but you may very well be right.

Having grown up in South Texas that’s nearly impossible for me to do. If you look “Messkin” you’re reminded repeatedly and from a young age (for me it was 1st grade) that you are most definitely NOT white.

In the end you are describing Good Guys and Bad Guys, which is itself a mixed and shifting muddle.

Well the choices are pretty stark this election thanks to the Overton window having been moved pretty far into the “less free” specturm from my perspective. No matter ow imperfect HRC is, she’s not spouting scary proto-fascist rhetoric several times a week, so she looks like an island of sanity & tolerance (again, from where I’m sitting).

Let me take this to retail. Walmart retail. Yes, if you get scared at Walmart over foreign fashion or cultural differences like a kippah, or a burka, or a Sikh turban you may need some help. Especially if you kinda like that gray wig and tricorn hat on the other guy.
If you get pissed when someone else finally gets what you have like the right to marry, or vote, or get a promotion you may need some help.
If your instinctive reaction to a foreign accent is more upset than at the guy carrying two pistols and a rifle, get help.
If your reaction to the less fortunate is unkind or uncaring instead of kind please do get help. Or at least stay away from us who would rather enjoy fellow human company than fear it.

If you get very very angry at me for saying these things out loud here, I have a basket for you.

Through each of the last presidential elections, one of my mantras has been this: I am not a guest in my own country, tolerated due to the beneficence of the majority, ie. “normal” Americans.
I’m Jewish, eastern European descent, and every cell in my body remembers why my grandparents left everything they knew to come here, and how those family members who stayed behind vanished into the maelstrom. My ancestors got in only a few years before immigration from eastern Europe was shut down due to xenophobia and red-scare panic.
My husband is Mexican-American, naturalized citizen. We’ve raised Mexican-American Jews.
This is our country and we all have a stake in helping it to become the place it has so long promised to be.
E Pluribus Unum exactly.

Diversity is America’s strength, though some people are blind to that reality.
