The proof we all need that most of America doesn't care about racism, In fact agrees with it, is Trump in office.

how anyone with half a brain think people who didn't vote for Clinton are going to vote for Biden is beyond me. They jumped from Obama to because Clinton was clearly a shill for Wall St and the global elite. I mean, Obama was too, but he did a much better job of running as a populist. Did everyone forget that Trump ran as much on opposition to the TPP and NAFTA as he did on his quixotic wall?

Greg Newman Biden's unfavorability rating is currently at 35 percent, Hillary's was in the mid 60's. she was the second most hated candidate in history, trump was the first, but they were only separated by a few points. Biden would annihilate Trump. All those white working class rust belt voters loved Bill, they just hated Hillary, she doesn't connect with them at all. Biden does. I'm not a fan of him, but it is a mistake to compare his electoral upside with HRC who was hated for 2 and a half decades before she ran

Greg Newman I was glad when the guy being interviewed didn't take the bait with the "if someone like Biden was to run" #letsnotrepeat2016

I expect that everyone will be upset about this episode. But. I think it is important to mention that, if you can't see what is wrong with "back to your country" you are likely: 1. White. 2. Sheltered. Literally no matter what race you are, if it isn't white, you have very likely heard this same thing said to you. If not you, your parents. It is a very familiar statement. It hurts. For the President to say that, shows what kind of man he is. He could have made a mistake, but he made it apparent that he doesn't even have the intent to acknowledge the history of that exact statement. "If you don't like it, leave." I have no choice but to believe that the majority of Trump supporters are white people. I can't imagine any people of color hearing that said and not feeling anything.

Calvin Unruh it's not accurate to make generalized statements like "white people suck". there are good and bad in every race. each has their own ideals stemming from their upbringing. I think it's absurd that this country is divided into Republicans and Democrats. each side has its own pros and cons. labeling people is what causes division and hate. let's not go there....
