A quarter million people died unnecessarily because it was a nihilistic con man's turn to run the place.
It was his TURN
Everyone knew what he was. But for a myriad of terrible reasons, decided to let him do whatever he wanted at whatever cost.
There's something deeply broken in a government when everyone knows that a man is killing thousands of people to satisfy his ego and line his wallet, and a legislature of actual, grown-up humans couldn't muster the collective will to stop him until it was the appointed time.
Usually the latest label for a group is considered the least offensive/most acceptable.
(Nigger > Nigra > Negro > Colored > Black > African American)
So if white people are gonna play it safe, they're gonna insist that everyone use the most recent.
"Latinx" is the most recent.

The Lincoln Project is that weak link kidnapper who was supposed to watch you, but felt kinda bad at the last minute at how badly the rest were treating you and slipped you a key to your cuffs and even though he's still gonna help hunt you down, he wants to give you a head start.
Like you can be thankful that they helped you escape eventually, but like... They're not heroes.
They're kidnappers who had a momentary change of heart.
Sure they let you out, but they also helped cuff you to the radiator in the first place.
