I wonder if he realizes that not all caucasians are white.

I disagree, to me the distinction is mostly driven by the "phobia" aspect. Racism comes in many forms but classical racism isn't predicated on fear but entitlement and a sense of superiority. That foreign elements are inherently a threat. Keep in mind I'm not saying this is his view or even platform but that its a campaign appealing to fear. This makes sense, he's trying to paint a picture of America's inherent goodness and its hard to sell it as inherently good when you acknowledge domestic threats instead of just blaming foreigners.

You see, I'm pretty sure Donald Trump and his followers feel an immense sense of superiority over all non-white peoples, and are 'afraid' of those individuals precisely because they view the increasing non-white demographic in this country as a threat to their pristine, hermetically sealed 1950's-style paradise of lily suburbia.

But, it's not really worth diving into arguing over these kinds of semantics.

I just want to say, it might be my circle of friends but the constant insistence of people trying to say Sanders can still get the nomination has led to comical levels. They treat him like G1 Starscream. Hillary stubs her toe I just imagine a whiney Bernie rushing in "she is unfit to lead, now I will take control of the democrats."

Not saying he's doing that, but how it looks to me how his supporters think of him as just ready to pounce on the presidency.

Is the debate tonight going to lead me to:

A: Attempt to drink myself into oblivion?
B: Lead to suicidal thoughts?
C: Lead me to angrily demand the systemic executions of all the Trump-coddling media bozos in this sour excuse of a country?!?
D: Make me yearn to repeatedly smash my skull in with a hammer until the pain of existence subsides?!?!?

I wonder which everybody

Remember, the debate can't hurt you if you pull the blankets over your head and squeeze your eyes closed really tight.

Now, everybody who isn't a straight white guy, they're getting hurt for sure, but the blanket trick is an option for those of us who are.

I'm sorry if this includes anyone here but I realize what really irks me about my generation. All commentary on the election is just idiotic immature memes. You don't really have much room to talk about how embarrassing it is America has these two as our options when your rebuttal to them is photoshopping their heads onto babies. You aren't some brilliant satirist you are part of the problem. Dumbing down debate and complex political issues to petty and childish insults.

Aero political cartoons have been a thing since the dawn of newspapers.

Memes as they are on the internet are just the newest medium, it's no different from people who think Selfies are the advent of some disgusting new level of narcissism when in the old days people would pay exorbitant amounts and stand around for hours to get a famous painter to do their portrait.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.
