The word is "schadenfreud." Yes. I actually take pleasure in watching and listening to these people anguish, squirm, and wring their hands over Trump's blatant attempts to actually steal THEIR voting power.

You, as usual, are so right.

Another equally obvious example of white folks' lack of concern for anybody but themselves is the so-called "opioid crisis." Black and brown people have been begging and pleading with the "white power structure" for decade after decade to stop punishing drug addicts and low-level dealers, and provide treatment instead; to treat drug addiction as a public health issue and not as a criminal matter.

They only started listening (and changing) when "opioids" began to destroy them and their families.

Again, brilliantly done, as always.
