“How did this happen, how did DJT get elected?”

The answer is racism.

“But if that’s the answer then HOW did it happen? Someone should write a book!”

No book needed. It’s racism. And the handwringing about needing a book is racism too.
Racism: white voters chose DJT in spite of his open racism

Racism: voting districts are stacked against poor and IBPOC

Racism: the democrats do exactly as little as possible to help IBPOC while still being able to be the “lesser of two evils”
Racism: people only got upset about DJT when he targeted white women

Racism: white people are pretending that all this noticeable racism is new

Racism: this country’s idea of “equality” is premised on genocide and slavery

I don’t get what’s so hard about this. It’s racism.
White people are going to keep pretending that we just need to dig harder to find the answers because they are afraid of encountering their own racism.

Digging harder won’t do it. All you’ll find down there is excuses for why YOUR racism isn’t racist but THEIR racism is evil.
This is like knowing your house is on fire and trying to find the thermostat shutoff “because fire can’t be the only reason that it’s so hot”
