Thanks! Even the centrist Republicans who wanted immigration reform were so terrified of their own base. Democrats were game. I agree Trump is a symptom not a cause. I think my comments were inclusive of religious and national origin discrimination, though I see your broader point. Fwiw, my focus on people of color stems from working on voting rights, though the dichotomy you point out is certainly worth bearing in mind. Finally, I’m not sure what healing itself looks like in this context. The most effective solution I can see is at the ballot box.

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