"After all, what is the modern GOP? A simple model that accounts for just about everything you see is that it’s an engine designed to harness white resentment on behalf of higher incomes for the donor class."

1. Shut up Bill.
2. Do you really want to lose the black vote this much? You were counting on the black vote.
3. This is why, despite your decades of accomplishments, people still have a problem with you and Hillary.
4. Fine. Let's start a dialogue about how the Clinton administration supported racist policing policies and the neutering of welfare.
5. Hillary is counting on New York. She's expected to win New York by quite a bit. She's been working for a win in New York for years now. What if she loses because of stuff like this?

So it finally came to where the Nation (my nation, to be specific) got split 3:1 to decide on the impeachment of Dilma Rousself, last Sunday the deputies voted, and now the Senate has to vote, either way it's pretty clear she'll leave presidency, for the large right-wing majority of the country, getting rid of her and her Party will be a blessing, for the other smaller half there's not much they can do but complain on Facebook about how unfair they're being to poor Dilma who didn't do anything, except everything, as well as give numerous threats of how everything will get worse and cry about it doing Titanic analogies.

The article seems to forget that she was accused of helping ex-President Lula escape the Car-Wash investigations by granting him a Prime Minister-esque rank so he could be judged by a ''more favourable'' court, but don't be mistaken, she fucked up Big time, she lied during presidential campaigns, her political campaign itself was exceedingly lush and expensive compared to the other campaigns going on at the time, basicaly let Petrobras in the gutter, Brazil's economy is all kinds of messed up, yet ''she's not all bad'', you know, because being among a gang of thieves doesn't make you a thief, same way how walking like a duck, looking like a duck and quacking like a duck doesn't make you a duck. All this stuff where they try to paint the whole situation as an overblown hatred over a weak politician is crazy talk. At least the article agrees that this ''coup'' is a bunch of nonsense.

Now cracks a noble heart.—Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

1.5 million people took a racial bias test. Red areas are more racist.
