      @Her Story Like I said, it was crystal clear that the latina being interviewed knew the right wing *_rhetoric._* Whether she *_wanted_* or actually uses “free stuff” is irrelevant, as is the fact that the country’s “Food Stamp Capitol” is a white county in Mitch Mcconnell’s Kentucky that faithfully votes against their own interests. The POINT is that she was spewing those garbage talking points as a voter *_with that garbage in mind_* when choosing four more years of Trump.

      Your degrees and familial achievements mean absolutely *_nothing_* if the wrong cop stops any of you for changing lanes without using a turn signal. The wrong kind of cop is feeling even MORE emboldened by these election results than he felt at this same time *_yesterday,_* as are the Karen’s, and the George Zimmermans. So, while it’s *_awesome_* that you and yours are able to prosper greatly no matter *_who_* wins our elections, for too many there are *_levels_* to greatness being heavily influenced/stunted/interrupted by the politics of the nation. Election wild cards like “brown” voters who are steeped in racist political ideologies are a real problem that *_should_* have been obvious to all. Most *_republicans_* didn’t even pick up on it. This discovery is a happy accident for them. Going forward, they’ll likely be making adjustments to their anti-immigrant rhetoric. Or not.

    • @Valencia Mcneill If you read what I stated I said that the younger generation does not understand the blood sweat and tears it took for us to get to where we a family. I also understand the struggle, but Blacks have to stop looking at all Brown and Black skin people as a friend. As Ronald Martain stated that all skin folk are not skin folk. The thing about people Brwon, White, even Black you give a person something to hate and they forget about their condition and interest. Why do you think a majority of Chinese immigrants voted for #45 even with his negative talk. The Republicans already know as Donald Trump stated he did not know the Proud Boys were a racist group because the leader is a Latino. Look at Marc Rubio in Florida. They already know, so do not think that they do not. Also, the Cubans in Florida know the effects of Immigration. When I lived in Florida Immigration came to the elementary school to take Cuban parents and children into custody. The Black Principal had to lock them in the office and refused to let Immigration have the children and called the parents.

      @Her Story I read what you stated about Latinos who “want to be white so bad”, and responded to it. A lot of them *_are_* white, in the exact same (class) sense as anyone that you would agreeably consider to be “white”. All skinfolk ain’t *_kinfolk_* is EXACTLY RIGHT. Now apply that to your concerns about “brown” people who consider themselves to be white and just let them *_be_* white. Then recognize how easily these “white” people can be just as bigoted and/or outright racist as any other. Then notice that you’re much less blindsided or confused when these “white” people throw a monkey wrench in the polls and elections. *_Neither_* party targeted that demographic *_realistically._* They should have been approached with the same messaging aimed at black Trump supporters, instead of assuming that the LatinX demographic just doesn’t have “that problem”, because we didn’t see them with signs and MAGA hats at the rallies. If they do not collectively see themselves as “people of color”, you better believe them when they *_show_* you the proof during elections.

    • @Valencia Mcneill That is the thing you see them in Florida. Especially if they go to the Catholic Church their ideology is set by their priest. I live in Florida during the 2016 election nothing but Trump signs. The Latino guy across the street from me had 4 in his yard. he went so far as to tell me that I should probably remove my Hillary sign. I told him to mind his own business, and stay out of my yard. He was not a White Latino He was a want to be White Latino.

    Hispanics are going to keep the Republican Party from collapsing clearly

    • and the republicans will still do nothing for latin/hispanics/latinos just like Mitch does nothing for us in KY. The education system has really failed Americans.

    • @Canada Student So AOC is a grifter and yet trump and pals aren’t? gtfoh☝
      @Izzy Grieco giving us good information and something substantial to digest. And here you come with the same political nonsense🤦‍♂️

      @ydamor “Malignant predator”. You nailed Biden!

    • @Priyam D yes i agree, here in kentucky they voted against themselves again and again and again🤦‍♂️ Mitch has done nothing here and yet they keep voting for him. It defy all sense and logic. Now he will still do nothing while Ky still suffers. Unbelieveable…I almost welcome Putin to come here and clean up this place to be honest LOL

    • The Malignant predator occupying the WH has a record of 26-legal cases for sexual assault, which includes a 13-year girl. Make that 27 after the latest Federal Court ruling preventing the DOJ from representing him in his latest sexual scandal related lawsuit. When someone posts a comment contradicting facts that are easily verifiable through the Courts Public Records, you know that you are dealing with a troll or a very disturb individual. Hence, never reply to their faked-reality comments directly. If trolls, they get paid by hits.

    • @ydamor yes the trolls have been sent by Putin and china but if I think some Americans are just not educated enough to think for themselves.

    • @Clay Moore , we do have a small percentage of Republicans who are deeply intellectually-impaired. The Democrats have them, too. But the support for this Malignant comes from the satanic-faked-republican-jesus-fascist-nazi-cult followers who are hellbent on suppressing anybody else’s God-given Free Will. So they can establish their “idea” of God’s Kingdom on Earth. Arrogant vipers! In all truth, they are nothing more than despicable evil-doers who have sold their humanity to the Malignant in exchange for a dream-like fantasy of a Russian-orthodox Gilead. – I am sure their destiny would have some wandering in the desert. Maybe 50+ years as Germany did after they failed to stop their own Malignant. .

  9. Rather worrying to see so many Americans voting for Trump. Do they want to end democracy and have the nation become a dictatorship, led by corrupt politicians?

    • @Priyam D, the Malignant cannot connect with anyone. By nature, he’s deprived of all capacity for love, compassion and empathy. On the other hand, his supporters do bond with his innate (because of his malignant narcissism) capacity for cruelty, ruthlessness, hatred and insatiable thirst for control and power. His cult following embraces his malignancy. This is their connection. However, the deliberate dumbing down of the masses is definitely a pre-requisite. There is nothing we can do at this time. USA will be the next Venezuela in less than people think. Shameful!

    • For many Americans, democracy isn’t as important as living in an officially Christian, anti-abortion country. I read years ago that Putin is actually popular among many of them due to his embrace of the conservative Russian Orthodox Church, for example his criminalizing of homosexuality. These folks apparently believe in rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s (to quote from the New Testament).

    • Trump is a corrupt politician and businessman. Trump is a would-be dictator.

    • We are already led by corrupt politicians

    • Idiots voting for the rich. Happens all over the world. They own the media. The media tells them who to vote for.

  10. Why would anyone believe that socialism is coming to America? It has never been so in its entire history joe Biden has been Vice President before did he do anything at the time that might suggest that he will be a future socialist? Trump has proved that he is a fascist which one is better? Come on the real reason the Latinos vote for trump is because of his position on race not even on the economy because he is proven a failure in that department too. Well he called you rapists thieves drug dealers and you still stick with him everyone was disgusted for you supported you in retrospect maybe you deserve whatever he brings your way

    • @#1 tricycle mechanic Trump is more like Fidel Castro than Biden. Most Latinos/Hispanics/Mexicans see themselves as White. These people are more racist than White people. I worked with a person that told me in his country he would be Black, but in America, he was considered White. It is Trump’s stand on race. Let that sizzle in your spirit.

    • They should understand what is socialism first. And of course, what is Capitalism. And what is corrupt, crony capitalism too. No ism is right. People need to wake up and shed this veil of buzz words.

    • Biden may have chosen not to defend well against the “socialist tool” allegation out of fear that defending would cost him more votes of progressives in other battleground states than it would gain from voters who have been duped by Fox News and Trump into believing Biden would be a socialist tool.

    • @#1 tricycle mechanic : If you think Trump doesn’t want to be a dictator, you haven’t been paying attention.

    • @Brother Mine I take your point which is a very valid one but if I was a progressive with half a brain who would I have a chance of swaying towards my aims biden or Trump by strongly denying the socialism label progressive are not suddenly go to bed with trump progressive or centre left we are all united in one thing we hate trump right now the main aim is to get rid of him then we can have our disagreements

  11. ANSWER THIS: I am 70 years old, have my MA, have my medicare, have my social security, and own my own home. For years, for others’ rights: I marched during my college days for civil rights, Vietnam, and other causes which had nothing to do with me. As recently as a year ago, I marched to Rubio’s office to protest Trump’s policies, gave money to several women’s marches, BLM, etc. If people elect Trump again, this says to me that while I fight for them, they will not fight for themselves–in fact, they will fight AGAINST themselves. My question is this: WHY SHOULD I CONTINUE FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS WHEN THEY OPPOSE THEIR OWN RIGHTS? Please answer this, please. Thank you. Jane

    • You see you are combining the communities Black communities most in part voted for Biden. In Florida, you have the Latino/Hispanic/Spanish communities that vote with Trump. In fact, the leader of the Proud Boys is Latino. Leader of Proud Boys also leads grassroots group Latinos for … › 2020/10/01 › politics › proud-boys-lead…
      Oct 1, 2020 — News of Tarrio’s tie to the grassroots movement supporting the President comes days after President Donald Trump refused to disavow White …

    • @jane… I don’t know why. Is it worth it or just exhausting?

      You are 70 you have lived through history.
      The ages 20, 30, 40, 50 year olds rely on their family history and whatever is taught in school.
      The idea of “that was then not now” is what they know. If they don’t see it or feel it, it won’t happen to them.

      It is a shame that the progress from 1950 can be wiped away by 1 election and continue by a 2nd and perhaps by many more to come.

      I guess there are more old way of life ideologies and rich folks that don’t want anything to change that affects them.

      When Mitch McConnell won it was an awaking that there are way more people with the same mentality of what they think this country should look like and be like.

      You are 70, if you enjoy fighting a good fight prosper onward but stay safe.

    I hate the guy but I think he’s won. I’m all for counting every vote, that’s what functional democracies do but I still think he wins. America squeaked by with that orange Norton causing only a national disaster and are hoping with another four years he can create a international disaster. Don’t worry Anerica, I think he can get there.

  13. Latinos Messed up!

  14. keep on praying things can turn around. Good vs Evil. you know who will prevail. Keep the faith.

    Looks like long lines waiting to vote day after day… All the polls get the same results but don’t match the winners in the elections… If all the polls were accurate, what would the polls be telling us?

  16. In Florida the sheriffs are already explaining that they have escorted millions of illegal immigrants to voting booths for Trump in an attempt to get back door citizenship like Melania’s parents. Illegals are using dead voter information to cast votes for Trump in Florida. Recount the vote. The Latino vote isn’t voting for Trump because they’re afraid of socialism, they’re voting for Trump because they’re afraid he will send them back!

    • @YouTube Moderator How is what he said, racist? He only cited voter fraud.

      @Her Story Another anti-immigrant racist. Get help.

    • @YouTube Moderator If it is benefitting Trump it is a salacious rumor and anti-immigrant, but coming from Trump supporters they are making America great again. Well, one of you should ask Trump when is he and his daughter going to bring their clothing factories to the USA to shore up the jobs market.

    • YouTube Moderator | November 4, 2020 at 12:12 PM | Reply

      @Her Story Trump owns NIKE? Didn’t know that.

    • @YouTube Moderator Trump does not own Nike. I did not say that I said his and his daughter’s cloth-making factories are in China. His MAGA hats are made in China. Ivanka shoes and clothing are made in China. Trump wished he owned Nike.

    Trump can’t fool his folks continuously, there will soon be a reckoning for them.

  18. This election was an IQ test for America. If Toxic Trump loses, we get a passing grade…but just barely, because is shouldn’t have even been close, and his Republican enablers were not roundly repudiated.

  19. Willful ignorance … Cubans need to open their eyes. Dems not commies…but Trump is a stereotypical right wing strongman .
