Must be terrible to live with these thoughts everyday. I feel sorry for you.

Fox Chapel was the home of the late Dem.Senator Heinz and his wife Teresa I believe.

I wouldn’t know where to begin educating you. Hillary was a lousy choice for one thing. Also some want manufacturing to return so people can feed their kids. Most don’t are about some locker room talk, they want jobs.

I never suggested that Fox Chapel was inhospitable.

I think it is a fact racism exists, there is just a difference on how people define racism. Technically everyone is some amount of racist. Also people infer racism without knowing the true intent. Someone dress poorly or in a style not typically seen or simply not acting the way most do while walking around a certain neighborhood will get stares, is it because of their race or something else? If you walk around the busy NYC streets stopping and looking up people will stare at you, nothing to do with your race most likely its because they know you are some tourist.


Also you can not group people based on Trump, there are plenty of right leaning folks who hate trump as a person but simply did not have a better option that aligned with their overall beliefs on the direction our policies should take. Growing up in NJ Trump has been a fixture, I've never thought of him as a humanitarian or great person. I didnt vote for him, I was out of state last minute so didnt vote for anyone. People also do not seem to grasp the fact that some matters they take personally can not really be effected by whoever is president. Its simply not the way our country is set up and for good reason. I would never worry about any president going to some extreme for my beliefs or against them, our politicians can barely work together when they all agree on something.

Hate is hate no matter where it is at or who it is directed towards. Hate doesn't have a political affiliation or a neighborhood that it resides in. I see a lot of hate in the city and less in the suburbs but i am sure if i was born a diffrent race, gender or orientation i would see it diffrently but if you think it doesnt exist at a large level in the city than you would be mistaken.

How so? He's the most overtly racist politician to hit the national stage in decades. Now, either you don't see the racism, meaning you're oblivious, or your tolerance for overt racism is high enough to allow you to continue supporting him.
