Someone said the video of the young girl chanting 'send her back' at the Trump rally reminded them of a scene from the Jackie Robinson movie '42'. So I put them side by side, and they were right, the similarities are both striking, and sickening. This is how racism works.

MLK and Jackie Robinson called it on July 16, 1964 when the GOP nominated Barry Goldwater (just 2 months after her voted against th Civil Rights Act). The Black vote went from 33% for Nixon (1960) to just 5% for Goldwater (1964)... That’s when the GOP lost black voters for good.
