OK. So I've been pretty hard recently on the Republican Party with family, friends, and acquaintances. Let's give them credit, after all, for their attempts to increase their base through their diversity efforts. Through Donald Trump (and to a lesser extent, Ted Cruz), the GOP has managed to greatly increase the number of racists in this country who, for years, have had wear their white robes in private. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, who increasingly ARE the face of the contemporary Republican Party, have diversified their party and made racism respectable again.
Quite an accomplishment!
