On Baskets of Deplorables.

​This weekend, I’ve learned that the majority of media in this country do not believe that people who hold racist, sexist, xenophobic, or homophobic views should be called racists, sexists, xenophobes, or homophobes.
I’ve realized that according to the media in this country, you can’t call people deplorable for holding deplorable views.
And that’s why these human ills will never be treated in this country. Because if it’s worse to call someone racist then to be racist, then we’ll continue to support racists and subtle forms of racism.

  1. I agree with you on this view. Those who still hold racist thoughts or say racist jokes are racists. Those who are not loving towards their “neighbors” whether they are gay, another race, ethnic or different religious follower are not being caring nor open minded. Setting an example by loving one’s neighbors, is howI intend to live. I do try not to label people but needed to explain my understanding of your post. Smiles, Robin
