I get where you’re coming from, but let me give you another perspective. Trump was racist since Obama with birtherism, utter disrespect while in office, and your White GA friend still voted for him. They voted him despite seeing him come down the escalator vilifying illegal immigrants. Those people detained are having their kids snatched and adopted by Whites for god knows what purpose, and children, men and women are telling horrific stories of rapes which are occurring as we type. Trump told the White person in GA what he would do. The cruelty was the point. They voted for him anyway, at the expense (always) of Black and Brown people. We watched the same man. We heard the same words, yet White people like the GA person voted for him anyway. He gets to “redo" his vote, but what about those children? What about those raped in detention? What about those killed? What about anyone killed in the name of Trump? This is why I don’t have any hope. Even if this person regrets casting that vote, what are they going to do meaningful to repair the damage done.
