I never said all Trump voters were racist. The problem is with policies that perpetuate systemic racism. If conservative politicians want to help fight racism they should fund groups that help people leave neo-Nazi orgs and they should restore the Voting Right Act, just as two examples. I also never condoned violence; I’m saying we have to understand it’s ideological roots.

Democracy is pretty cool. We should try it some time. Voting rights, science policy, political communication and grassroots activism.
