If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 To 37 percent.
Some politicians deny the evidence, no doubt because they don't want to alienate white voters, including prejudiced ones. Other commentators try to parse whether Trump's racism will be a winning strategy in 2020. Terry Smith, visiting professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law, offers a different response in his new book, "Whitelash: Unmasking White Grievance at the Ballot Box."
Rather than excuse racist voters or try to figure out how to live with their choices, he argues that racist voting is not just immoral, but illegal. The government, Smith says, has the ability, and the responsibility, to address it.

Needs a barf alert.
Their lies are totally over the top.
I do not think that the First Amendment should protect news organizations who just lie to the public. It’s not right.
Vote suppression is fine when the DemocRats do it. /s
As I read this I started to think it was a piece from The Onion or Babylon Bee?!
In not racist.
I am becoming resentful.
“it’s that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth”
Well, isn’t that why the KKK acted as foot soldiers for the Democrats during the Jim Crow days?
What will they try next?
Getting a bit tired of MSM lies.
Sooner or later they’ll make the tipping point move.
Then we’ll watch them eat those words.
I have long believed that as well. I can't believe that the Founding Fathers intended for First Amendment protections to be extended to media outlets who are, in actuality, house organs for a particular political party.
And I love how NBC and it’s affiliates no longer allow comments on their sites
Does he propose a double penalty for all of the Presidents non-white supporters?
The global leftist media are projectile vomiting again! They are the hateful violence supporting racists.
Agreed. OP, please put a Barf Alert on things like this. Some of us are sipping our morning coffee and spewing it is just such a waste of good coffee.
I remember when NBC News still pretended to be factual and objective. It wasn’t so very long ago.
What you are posting about is normal behavior for Comcast
Comcast is a more dangerous American enemy than Russia or Iran.
Comcast must be destroyed if there is to be America
According to NBC Trump making the African American unemployment rate the lowest in history would be racist. No explanation of how giving them the opportunity to earn a living promotes whites. Sadly many people still get the information that forms their opinions from this lying source.
Leave it to a twisted mind to come up with this merde.
They are still looking for a slogan that could match:
MAKE AMERICA AGAIN.
But something stops them....I wonder what that is...perhaps they HATE AMERICA?????
Expect to see more of this racist crap. The President is polling at 30% with black voters. These types of racist screeds are designed to keep the black vote on the Dem plantation. I have no doubt that we will see more of this as we get closer to the election.
Its all about creating a narrative they believe they can control. They dont seem to realize all their efforts may well create the very thing they claim to abhor.
