Baratunde Thurston, author of “How To Be Black” to MSNBC’s Brian Williams: “Every opportunity this president has faced to choose either himself or the interests of the public good, he has chosen himself. The challenge now is we’re in an increasingly common moment, at least of awareness, that racism is still real, that police are out of control when it comes to black people and the use of force. And it’s become so safe that the majority of the country, two-thirds now side with Black Lives Matter. It’s so safe that Mitt Romney feels comfortable going to a Black Lives Matter rally. It’s so safe that NASCAR has banned the Confederate flag at its own events. Yet this president still doesn’t feel safe. He’s so insecure because he’s not really the president of all of us. He is the president of a small and shrinking group of extremists who are out of touch with the increasing consensus that there is a truth to this country that we are ready to start to really reckon with.” (6/12/2020)
