And this trend continued well into the 20th century. Just watch D.W. Griffith's 1915 film "Birth of a Nation," which casts the Ku Klux Klan in a heroic light. Or, better yet, Victor Fleming's 1939 film "Gone with the Wind." Even the listless Ashley Wilkes joined a vigilante mob, a precursor of the Klan, to raid an encampment of freed slaves they feared threatened the honor of a White woman, Scarlett O'Hara. … [Read more...] about Dear White women, let’s not fall for Trump’s racist bet on us

Although Cohen claims that Trump made the same comment about Black voters, it's the Hispanic vote over the last four out of the last five Presidential elections that has been a decisive factor for Republicans.

Now, Kim Novak had been in seclusion for many years. She was a very self-conscious person. She's not the kind of person who deserves to be humiliated when appearing once on television for the first time in decades, so I noted this to Donald, and I said, "So come on, what were you doing with that? That really wasn't fair," and his response to me was fascinating. It was like a kid getting caught with a hand in the cookie jar or a baseball that's gone through a window. … [Read more...] about Who is Donald Trump?
