Americans Might be Baka, But We’re not THAT Baka!

The latest #BlackEye is up! Shared some thoughts on the recent election…

NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 09: Thousands of anti-Donald Trump protesters shut down 5th Avenue in front of Trump Tower as New Yorkers react to the election of Trump as president of the United States on November 9, 2016 in New York City.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Are you sure she’s going to win?” my Japanese co-worker seated beside me asked.

I leaned over and glanced at her computer screen.

I saw what had upset her. Texas’ results had just come in, and Trump had sprinted further ahead in what must have appeared to her as a feverish uncontested dash for the magic 270 Electoral College votes needed to clinch the presidency.

“Texas always goes red,” I said, looking at that Lone Star State, red as the blood of James Byrd, a black man who’d been lynched there back in ’98, chained and dragged behind a pickup truck driven by white supremacists. Can’t ever think of Texas without thinking of James.

“Texas is George Bush country. I don’t even think Clinton’s an option on their ballots. Relax.”
