Now that Republicans have discovered their presidential candidate is a full-blown racist, maybe we can turn this election into a national referendum on racism, with white supremacists on one side (Trump) and everybody else on the other side (Hillary). Depending on how it turns out, maybe we can finally put racism to bed in our country; in the future, whenever racism rears its ugly head again, we can point to the 2016 election and say, “We’ve already voted on that.”
