    I kinda agree but if you're getting shut down by 17-year-old girls on Twitter you need to educate yourself much better on the issues and decide based on that gleaned info rather than on a vindictive whim.

    Yes and I would add that those who voted for Trump to sabotage the system are children who are in for a shock if they get their way.

    White people are so quick to look so disgusted when someone calls them racist for their political beliefs. If the majority of Trump voters are white people, and literally all black/ethic minorities voted against him, doesn't that tell you something about Trump's support for white supremacy? Also, why are you so shocked/offended when someone calls you racist when you support Trump who advocates to deporting anyone of latino heritage and condemning Muslims entering the country, having a VP who wants conversion electric shock therapy, and plans to build a wall to keep immigrants and refugees out? Why are you so shocked when someone calls you racist when you vote for a party like UKIP or support a campaign that is entirely built on hatred to minorities? Look at the people who support Trump/Brexit and tell me they're not inherently racists, trying to so desperately cover up the fact they are so.
    If you're gonna ***** and moan about people calling you racist, don't support racist politics!

    No. White people voting for Trump doesnt make it white supremacy anymore than if all black people were to vote for someone making him a black supremacist. If there is white supremacy involved, you'll have to tease that out a bit with more premises.

    So the fact that a very large majority of those voted for Trump were white isn't white supremacy? Do you not understand systematic oppression? Black people have been fighting for the right to vote so of course they're going to vote for the candidate that is not threatening to take away such a right. You're probably someone who believes that you can be racist to white people so I'm not even going to waste my breath on you.

    I am happy Trump won.

    And you should be too.

    Like the OP, we've got alot of moaners. They like to say 'Ha, you called me a racist, well guess what, IM GOING TO VOTE TRUMP - muahahhaa *slits wrists*.

    Well you know what, go for it. Let the people have what they've asked for. If you believe Trump is the best to be the President go for it, if you believe Brexit is the right decisions - go for it.

    There is no need to continue bragging about it, there is no reason to vent your insecurity by feeling the need to 'justify' your decision. For whatever reason anyone supported Trump, I can respect it.

    Let the people have something different for once. Let's see what Trump can do - could be very successful or he could be a big failure. Either way, lessons will be learned.

    "White people are...." Please tell us more about what we are, you've already expressed psychic abilities regarding tens of millions of people.

    I wasn't saying I don't condemn voting for Trump, I was condemning the left's compulsion for calling everything racist they don't agree with as a major factor in him winning.

    One small point, the majority of all "minorities" voted against him, all minorities' didn't so I am curious how you will dismiss those millions as racists as well.

    I hardly think that was a major factor in him winning. Did you follow the campaign trail much?

    The word was hardly used. I think it was mostly the distrust of Hilary Clinton and the failed establishment which managed to isolate millions of people. I think most of the attacks form the opposition from the liberal left were mostly about his lack of political correctness in the way he speaks about people, especially woman.

    In regards to the nauseating masochism, In all fairness both sides are gulty of this and form my observations, more Trump supporters.

    With all due respect, I think you need to stop playing the race card (and I say this as a black man). Not everything is about race, yet for some reason there is a section of the population who can;t stop talking about it. *Yawn*.

    That was kind of my point, claiming racism where it doesn't exist will only cause resentment. It isn't only about race, my point was about left wing bullying and indulgences. Speaking as someone of the left, I despair at the illiberal path a large section of so called liberals has led us down. That is at least part of the backlash against Clinton and definitely party explains the rise of Trump.

    The right does not have issues with masochism, it has issues of right wing populaism, which is the complete opposite.

    Trump and Brexit are the results of forcing globalism down people's throats. They are the result of a society advancing much faster than the majority of the individuals are. We are not yet ready to overcome our hatred for those different from us, at least not completely. It took us a long, long time to overcome our backwards view of women, and I expect it will take much longer to overcome our backwards view of immigrants. I am hopeful that one day the view of ethnic minorities will improve, but only if the improvement came from the individuals, not the government.

    Humans are not growing smarter by the minute. The only reason our world views improve is because of constant challenge and opposition that eventually erodes away the darkness within social customs and culture. The hatred of homosexuality and the inferiority of women have been eroded away, I hope, by tens and hundreds of years of challenge. On the other hand, immigration is a relatively new issue that has been compounded by the economic and martial strife of the world. It will take years of challenge to authority and customs, it will take generations until those negative views are eroded away from our culture. A similar issue is that of climate change, again our mass view of it will only change with years and years of fighting.

    I never expected that society would completely and out of the blue start accepting immigration in 20-30 years, specially with all the terrorist attacks and such. Give it more time, I say, and don't force ideas on people, no matter how good the ideas are.

    Oh wow. . . .

    I would recommend a class in formal logic to understand formal fallacies, but then there's so much problematic than invalid logic here. Of to Buzzfeed you go!

    Absolutely deplorable.
    What's your point? Obviously whites have a much greater impact on the results, as they form the majority of the population.

    Makes me wish only men could vote.

    I don't want only men to vote, I just wish the results would be the same as if men could only vote (i.e. to the right). You still haven't replied to my original question, which was what was the pointing in posting that infographic?

    I have a very low tolerance for idiots dressed in education and middle class socialisation.

    Very low tolerance. You have no excuse for your lacking cognition.
