Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

On Trump, the roots of bigotry and the souls of White folk.


What does it mean to say that a hypothetical white person has a soul? Black thinkers particularly have pondered this for at least a couple centuries, and the conclusions are mixed. Let me assure you, I am not advocating that a black person should approach any given white stranger without suspicion. Use your judgment, you know this terrain better than I.

Jeff Dorchen looks at the bigotry in and around the Trump campaign, and sees a lot of it coming from the left - he also sees a lot of barely justified assumptions, accusations of misogyny, actual misogyny, angry picnics, those with us, those against us, everyone else in between and also finds support, forgiveness and the realization that White people can be people too.
