With McCain's passing, we're being shown how easy it is for white men to get away with a life of destruction. White people all along the spectrum are ready to forget everything McCain ever did. And consequently, when another one shows up, they'll say were overreacting.
When Trump is unseated, his president will be treated as a curious anomaly rather than the original sins of this country coming home to roost.

Whiteness cannot be condemned. That's part of the package deal.
"Give him a chance"!
"He did something heroic once a long time ago!"
"He adopted a person of color!"
"It's only criminals that will be treated this way."
"We don't have him on tape saying that!"
"It was a different time!"

The excuses never end. Never.
Why would these powerful white men stop doing the things they do? Why? What consequences have we given them? What incentives do they have to be better?

Help me understand why white boys wouldn't want to grow up to be exactly like John McCain?
