The insurance company State Farm recently posted an advertisement on Twitter, showing a black man offering a white woman a wedding ring and offering their congratulations to people who have gotten engaged over the holiday season. It’s a touching moment that inevitably brought the deplorables out of the woodwork.
Their responses to such an innocent and touching moment are an obvious representation of the deep-seated racism that not only brought Donald Trump to the presidency but animates crises like the police brutality epidemic and the widespread discrimination and marginalization of people of color at all levels of American society. The flood of vitriol that follows is also an interesting glimpse into the way that the far-right has constructed itself a narrative that purports to be based on obviously false statistical information to justify their heinous opinions.
