We are the bad guys

We are the empire, breaking apart families and driving innocents to despair.

We're the people with ridiculous make-up and hair in the Hunger Games.

We are the benign racists, who swear we don't hate people of color; we just can't be bothered to care when our choices will ruin their lives.

You can lie to yourself – and you will have to, to deny this – but it doesn't change the new reality.

We are the bad guys.

2016 Election Statistics

White millennials voted for Trump 48% to 42%
White women voted for Trump 53% to 43%
White college graduates voted for Trump 49% to 45%

Black men voted Hillary 82% to 13%
Black women voted Hillary 94% to 4%

Latino men voted Hillary 63% to 32%
Latino women voted Hillary 69% to 25%

Black millennials voted Hillary 85% to 9%
Latinos millennials voted Hillary 68% to 26%

Non-white college graduates voted Hillary 72% to 22%

All of these numbers are from the same CNN exit poll.

It is hard to find a single white demographic that did not come up with a Trump majority (white college-graduated women come up 51% for Hillary) and there is not a single non-white demographic that came up with a Trump majority or came anywhere near the polling margin of error.

Statistically the strongest defining feature of the Trump supporter is whiteness.

Does this mean the majority of white people actively hate people of color and voted for Trump because they wanted a racist in charge?

No. That’s not how racism works.

What it means is that, as a result of unconscious racism, a LOT of white people who do not consider themselves racist ignored Trump’s racism and voted for him anyway.

They simply did not care about people of color enough to not vote for Trump.

That’s racism’s biggest effect: apathy to the point of allowing people to die because you can’t be bothered to keep them safe.

For me, the idea of calling people about the Issue of the Day is… daunting. Exhausting – also that – but just kind of overwhelming. Who do I even call? What do I say? What if I forget something important? What if I miss something I really wanted to do something about.

And… I'm a talker. I don't know how folks with anxiety do it at all.

Kate asked me about these exact same problems tonight, and I said "Hey let's check out this site 5calls."

And I have to tell you, after looking through what the site does to help you out with these kinds of things – to help you make a difference – I got really excited.

So I made a short video explaining the whole thing, because it's cool, and because I want you to know about it and maybe get excited too.

Check it out.

What's the Most Secure Phone?

The answers range from 'not terribly useful' feature phone, to an iPod Touch with a bunch of options disabled (note: is not actually a PHONE), and wander into less secure territory from there.

"It's a security first-principles dilemma: the most secure device is likely to be the least useful to the average person."

I Sent a Letter Today

Here's the gist:

This is a message of support for Mayor Hancock, regarding his stance on Denver as a "Sanctuary City."

In a recent interview, the Mayor said: “We are going to […] make sure we remain an inclusive city,” and echoed statements from both NYC and Chicago mayors in standing up to the current federal administration, which has threatened to withhold federal funds from Sanctuary Cities.

I am PROUD to see Denver stand up for the rights and opportunities of immigrants, and want to offer my heartfelt support and hope that the Mayor and his office continue to stand up against federal pressure.

Raise our taxes – do what you have to to make up for the lost federal funds – but DO NOT GIVE IN.

This is Colorado – we are used to rough weather – we can take it.

Thank you, sir.
