Im so sick of this CRAP. Who is behind it? Not someone interested in a successful future for us all.

Theyve taken the well intentioned diversity and affirmation action policies my generation started in the early 80s and turned it into a monster.

"identity politics",
just like negative campaigning, WORKS.
if it did not work well enough for long enough
the candidates would try something else.

Both parties are so full of BS and victimhood mentality because the squeaky wheel gets the grease. The most vocal people run the parties, not the people who are honest.

Who is “they”? Definitely tell us who is to blame for the divide because that’s not ironic at all.

i beg to differ, SFit.

i think that the most vocal are the most honest.
even if do not like what they say, i do believe they
are (if not 100% honest) MORE honest than those
who are equivocating.

Why don’t you enlighten us as to how this ridiculous reality happened to this country?

My simple answer points to social media and psychology. Zuckerberg hacked the human race.

Combat racial discrimination by institutionalizing it and surprise, surprise.
