Why do all these "anti racists" seem to choose to live in areas that are overwhelmingly white? It kind of smells of hypocrisy doesn't it?
a HUGE amount of pressure to be progressive
Conservatives have always been older on average. They tend to be more mature and have superior critical thinking skills.
Trump wasn't elected on the white male vote alone and all of you know that.
As for looks, most leftist leaders are pure to the bone ugly. Think: Pelosi, Schiff, Clinton, Nadler, Wasserman-Schultz...you name em. News channels aren't much different. Compare the women on Fox News to CNN. LOL there's just no comparison.
More white men are wise enough to be conservative in their later years than most other categories of people in this country. It’s as simple as that. We’re the reason why this nation became the most powerful and influential in history. And while it seems virtually every tech billionaire these days is a self-described liberal and anti-Trumper, they could not have achieved their wealth and power without the groundwork laid by many generations of old white men, beginning with the Founding Fathers and continued by the amazing businessmen and inventors who made us the wealthiest nation on Earth by 1900, or at least the mightiest industrial and agricultural nation.

What do you all think about the fact that a vast vast majority of republicans look the same. Specifically, they look like middle-aged to older white men. When we turn on fox news, we almost invariably see old, white men. Sometimes some white women. This is further reflected in voting demographics. Republicans dominate the white male vote, while democrats receive votes from a far more diverse spread of people.
I'm very curious as to your reaction to this... Why do you think this is? Is it simply a coincidence? Do you just not even think about it?
I'm not saying all white people are racist, or anything ridiculous like that. I'm annoyed by the extreme SJWs as much as the next person. In fact, I'm a white man approaching middle age myself. But I'm genuinely curious why you think this is, or if you've ever even thought about it...

I would guess it is because people want to live in the nicest place they can afford. I know every time I went out to buy a home that is what I was looking for. I never counted how many people of Color were in the area.
I am not saying that there are not people that are so bigoted that they would give up an opportunity to live in the lap of luxury, if they could afford a place in a wealthy Black community, just because they hate Blacks.
I just don't believe that when most people are looking for a home, that they look for places that don't have people of Color, and I don't think that is why the people you speak of live where they do.
Oprah is not the only wealthy Black person in America, but I will use her as an example. Why do you think it is wrong for those others to live in an area with few people of Color, but think it is okay for people of Color to live in those same areas?
I am willing to bet their reasons for living where they live are close to the same, because color has very little to do with it.
Also I am interested to know why you are seeming to imply that white neighborhoods are "nicer", that in itself sort of sounds a bit bigoted. Not trying to pick a fight, just an observation.
