Quote:
It took 14 months for the noose to show up.

Fourteen months where Marcus Boyd says he endured racist comments, slights, even threats in a hostile workplace run by General Motors.

A workplace where people declared bathrooms were for "whites only," where black supervisors were denounced as "boy" and ignored by their subordinates, where black employees were called "monkey," or told to "go back to Africa."

A workplace where black employees were warned a white colleague's "daddy" was in the Ku Klux Klan. Where white workers wore shirts with Nazi symbols underneath their coveralls.

In Ohio.

In 2018.

The very different ways people understand racism can change the entire premise of a story: if a subject says "policing is racist," does an editor or reader take that to mean that individual officers are bigots or do they take that to mean that police are deployed in ways that have specific consequences for black and Latinx people? A producer or reader who has been stopped repeatedly by the police is going to read everything that flows from that statement differently. For mainstream newsrooms, the friction between these two notions of racism as primarily about the physics of people's souls or primarily about the mechanics of our society is going to present a larger crisis of credibility as the country gets browner. But it's a crisis that's been a long time coming.

Yeah, the day will come when the Women's March doesn't require rich white patrons. It's like the difference between being aghast at gun violence because of schools versus being aghast at gun violence because you've lived with it upon your neighborhood, your friends, your family, for decades.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to have little trouble calling Donnie BooBoo a racist in televised interview. The Democratic Socialist Party is also the only one anymore that is stating it's opposition to big money in politics.
