This is a generalization, but how come Democrats of color have always seen the threat from Russia so damned clearly - while others (shall we say) have not? And despite our national history of racism? This fact (and it is one) always amazes me.
The CBC has been "Russia stole the election" from the start. Liberal commentators (non-white) - 'Russia stole the damned election." In 2016. White progressive counterparts: 'don't make us laugh." Why is that?
Obvious exceptions apply, but it's a pattern. In my own circle if acquaintances I find this generalization holds. "Our country is under attack" was FAR more likely to be the line I heard from non-white lefties in 2016.
And they were right. Exactly, dead on, metaphysically correct. I'm just thinking out loud here, but I think it's related to lived experience and sharpened political intuition. Love to hear what folks think.
