At first, it looked as though Election Day would be a repetition of 2016. Then, states where President Trump was winning mysteriously stopped counting ballots, Fox News made a premature call for Joe Biden in Arizona, and the momentum shifted. Nonetheless, liberals still worried about “racism” even after it looked as though Joe Biden might win.
Polls don’t have an algorithm for racism.

President Obama’s Secretary of Education wrote this:
We need to talk a lot less about red and blue.
We need to talk a lot more about whiteness.

I know a lot of Democrats are going to blame the national party for what’s happened tonight … but it’s not as of Americans don’t know who Trump is. Maybe the problem isn’t Democrats. It’s the voters

Wyoming is 92% white.
California is 37% white.
A Wyoming voter has nearly 4x more influence than a California voter.
The Electoral College is racist. It must be abolished.
— Robert Reich (@RBReich) November 3, 2020
That’s the former Secretary of Labor. But what kind of a democracy led to the racial transformation of California despite the people voting against their own replacement?
Whatever the outcome tomorrow, THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE IS A HORRIBLE, RACIST, REGRESSIVE MECHANISM OF REPRESSING DEMOCRACY.

Of course, there was worse:

Remember this lady, Give Us Free, when they say we need “unity.”
To everyone: Stop trying addressing Trump supporters like they’re human beings with basic understanding and comprehension. They’re fucking monsters.

Some people were surprised:
Racism is Trump’s brand — but he outperformed the polls in large part with Hispanic and some black votes 5/

To that, I say I never want to hear about “systematic racism” from people who get official race preferences.
Morale has improved since Wednesday morning but now I’m wondering if I can ever be comfortable in a country that’s over 40% overtly racist, misogynistic, and xenophobic

LET’S PLAY A GAME! Quote this tweet with a euphemism for white people that white people use to avoid saying white people.

If you’re a Trumper I hope the pain and anxiety you feel now is excruciating. You voted against America and for a cult leader who has no redeeming or admirable qualities. He’s a cretin who cares nothing about this country and you don’t either. You deserve all the pain and more.

White people are the problem.
There are probably other, lesser, takeaways from this election, too.

But you won’t see one conversation or story about how conservatives can better appeal to black voters.
But we’re already in endless conversations about Dems and working class voters (read: White people) https://t.co/fjMiuIt0kK
— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) November 6, 2020
CPAC hosts that conversation every year, and President Trump offered blacks a $500 billion “Platinum Plan.” The conversation Republicans need to have is how to win white people. It was a drop in white support that is costing them the White House.
One day after this election is over I am going to write a piece about how Latino is a contrived ethnic category that artificially lumps white Cubans with Black Puerto Ricans and Indigenous Guatemalans and helps explains why Latinos support Trump at the second highest rate.

“Ida Bae Wells” is the half-white Nikole Hannah-Jones. She was one of the main writers behind the New York Times’s “1619 Project,” which made silly historical claims. Now that she has kicked certain Hispanics out of the Coalition of the Oppressed, I hereby welcome my new friends to the ranks of People of Light. Castizo Futurism will lead us to victory.
