And explaining doesn't seem to help...

Some Republicans in Congress.

Headline in the Washington Post, last year:

Half of American whites see no racism around them


Headline in the Washington Post, today:

Sexism is over, according to most men


Right.

Let's look at the 114th Congress, shall we? (Wonks: you can check out the stats here.)

This posting confirms my worst suspicions. Aren't there enough outstanding and articulate black women to prove these white guys wrong?

Yes, Luci, there certainly are, and these particular white guys have been proven wrong over and over again--not only by outstanding black women but even by other white guys. But they aren't listening, and they don't care much about facts.

Did you see Paul Ryan's selfie with his interns a few weeks ago. Finding a black face among them is harder than playing Where's Waldo.
