What the Rest of America Can Learn From My Experience Being Black in Trumpland… In Politico, Isaac Bailey has this must read. It’s a powerful item:

Trump supporters and their sympathizers are right: This is their America. But make no mistake, this is our America, too. We don’t have to apologize to anyone for wanting to shape it in our image as much as they want it to remain in theirs. Before January 6, I didn’t fully understand the importance of making that clear. I won’t forget again. And I won’t allow my kids to forget, either.

Read the whole thing.
