    WaPo Op Ed from members of the Obama administration:

    We’ve heard this before. Go back where you came from. Go back to Africa. And now, “send her back.” Black and brown people in America don’t hear these chants in a vacuum; for many of us, we’ve felt their full force being shouted in our faces, whispered behind our backs, scrawled across lockers, or hurled at us online. They are part of a pattern in our country designed to denigrate us as well as keep us separate and afraid.

    As 149 African Americans who served in the last administration, we witnessed firsthand the relentless attacks on the legitimacy of President Barack Obama and his family from our front-row seats to America’s first black presidency. Witnessing racism surge in our country, both during and after Obama’s service and ours, has been a shattering reality, to say the least. But it has also provided jet-fuel for our activism, especially in moments such as these.

    We stand with congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib, as well as all those currently under attack by President Trump, along with his supporters and his enablers, who feel deputized to decide who belongs here — and who does not. There is truly nothing more un-American than calling on fellow citizens to leave our country — by citing their immigrant roots, or ancestry, or their unwillingness to sit in quiet obedience while democracy is being undermined.

    We are proud descendants of immigrants, refugees and the enslaved Africans who built this country while enduring the horrors of its original sin. We stand on the soil they tilled, and march in the streets they helped to pave. We are red-blooded Americans, we are patriots, and we have plenty to say about the direction this country is headed. We decry voter suppression. We demand equitable access to health care, housing, quality schools and employment. We welcome new Americans with dignity and open arms. And we will never stop fighting for the overhaul of a criminal-justice system with racist foundations.

    We come from Minnesota and Michigan. The Bronx and Baton Rouge. Florida and Philadelphia. Cleveland and the Carolinas. Atlanta and Nevada. Oak-town and the Chi. We understand our role in this democracy, and respect the promise of a nation built by, for and of immigrants. We are part of that tradition, and have the strength to both respect our ancestors from faraway lands and the country we all call home.

    Our love of country lives in these demands, and our commitment to use our voices and our energy to build a more perfect union. We refuse to sit idly by as racism, sexism, homophobia and xenophobia are wielded by the president and any elected official complicit in the poisoning of our democracy. We call on local, state and congressional officials, as well as presidential candidates to articulate their policies and strategies for moving us forward as a strong democracy, through a racial-equity lens that prioritizes people over profit. We will continue to support candidates for local, state and federal office who add more diverse representation to the dialogue and those who understand the importance of such diversity when policymaking here in our country and around the world. We ask all Americans to be a good neighbor by demonstrating anti-racist, environmentally friendly, and inclusive behavior toward everyone in your everyday interactions.

    The statesman Frederick Douglass warned, “The life of a nation is secure only while the nation is honest, truthful and virtuous.” This nation has neither grappled with nor healed from the horrors of its origins. It is time to advance that healing process now through our justice, economic, health and political systems.

    Expect to hear more from us. We plan to leave this country better than we found it. This is our home.

    He has had 18 tweets in the last 12 hours, the last one accusing Cummings of dividing America.

    As opposed to a lot of other urban places? Pointing out that some aspect of the president's racism may be grounded in some sort of reality (yes, conditions are difficult in our inner cities and many people with the means choose to live in more "desirable" places) is missing the point. Which of course is on the job description of trump water carriers who claim they aren't just as racist as the president.

    If Baltimore is a dump, it is because the power structures have done everything they can to drive investment (in business, education, infrastructure) to the suburbs and now to the exurbs, and have been ever since white flight became a thing. There isn't anything inherently different about the people who live in our most trouble cities and those who live in affluent suburbs other than how much society has invested in protecting and growing the cities.

    Calling Baltimore a dump in this context is just a tangential move from being born on second base and thinking you hit a double. The poor kid born yesterday in the inner city of Baltimore was born with an 0-2 count and his team down in the bottom of the 9th, facing Sandy Koufax in 1963. That's the difference. If we invested in the middle of Baltimore (or Detroit, Cleveland, St Louis or a hundred other cities) like we do in the areas populated by white flight, in about two generations idiots like trump would have to refer to the exurbs as rat-infested dumps where no human would choose to live. Of course, that wouldn't happen, because the response would be grounded in reality, since it would be white people suffering and not blacks and browns. Sort of like the opioid crisis in 2019 needed all sorts of social intervention, but the crack epidemic in 1988 needed only mass incarceration to solve.

    It's like he keeps tripping over his own tie.

    I still can't believe there was a pizza place attached to the sex parlor in Florida. You'd think they'd stop projecting to take the heat off themselves for once.

    Come on guys, as a Catholic in the state, Im sure joe has spent countless days and thousands of man hours in Baltimore trying to help the people there. If he can think of all the people he has lended his hand, looked in the eye, and connected with and still call the place a dump, then I am sure he says so in good conscience. Unless of course joe is hypocrite who hasnt done any of that.

    I think I won the argument.

    Well is Baltimore a dump or not? Facts, not personal attacks matter.

    You refuse to see this for what it is. It isn't about a newspaper endorsing the wrong people. It is about a structure that keeps blacks, browns and a token number of whites down so that the rich whites running the structure can stay on top. If the infrastructure and public schools were as good in Cleveland as they are in Medina County, Cleveland would have similar crime and rat statistics to those I enjoy living one county to the south. And that means funding and investment. The solutions are probably that simple.

    The solution is per capita federal infrastructure and school funding. Equalize education and we equalize the next generation. Until we do that it's just a Plantation Economy.
