The men in charge of all the branches of the US military have denounced racism and broken with President Trump's encouragement of racists.

The Charlottesville furor is the latest example of the chaos that can result from Trump’s temper and refusal to back down.

The bitter irony: this is what the NRA wants anyway, all of us rallying behind getting more firearms.

I'll throw this in as well about General Lee.

I've been learning way too much these days. For example, it seems like a lot of these knuckledraggers think they can get away with their acts of ignorance on the grounds that they're Latino, thus not white, thus not oppressors. Because of course, only whitey is the bad guy, right?

On the bright side, so many historians on Twitter tweetstorming stuff has been great. I've never felt happier to use Storify than to archive some of their historical dialogues.

It's like we're reliving the sight of what it must have been to be Irish or Italian in the 20th century right before it became part of the canon for "white," which probably is secret terms for "known for some degree of success" since I've even seen a few propose that asians are also close enough to white given how they are part "caucasian." Yeah, I have no clue what the hell either.
