Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Kamala Harris, candidate for President, says the United States still hasn’t had an honest discussion about race.
Well, Kamala, that’s because “discussion” means “two people talk,” not just “you lecture me.” The word comes from a Latin root meaning “to take apart, to examine.” We can’t have a discussion if every time I try to speak, you silence me with a label like “Racist.”
Oh, crap, what that mansplaining? I guess I’d better shut up while you explain why I’m wrong about that, too.
We need a conversation about why you’re evil.
