For many black people, the prospect of an unchecked, second-term white supremacist outweighs the choice between Medicare for All and a public option. It’s heavier than student loan forgiveness or foreign policy. It’s bigger than all of the economic proposals and tax plans combined. It’s not even that people don’t think the other Democratic candidates can defeat Donald Trump. We just don’t know if they can defeat the overwhelming self-interests of white people.

There seems to be a number of people with a lot of difficulty understanding this. You may need to fix the roof of your house to make sure it doesn’t fall in and replace the furnace before it breaks, but the first thing you have to do is get the chainsaw-wielding maniac out of the living room.
