A raw nerve

“That is why the attack in Kansas—and the lack of a response—has touched a raw nerve: If a well-educated, law-abiding, and legally-employed immigrant can’t work in the US without fearing for his life, who can?”

Donald Trump’s Silence

“It has been three days since Srinivas Kuchibhotla, Alok Madasani, and Ian Grillot were shot in a terrorist attack by a man who shouted, “Get out of my country,” before opening fire. Three days. Three days that the Indian-American community has been in mourning. Three days that a young woman has been widowed. Three days that the two survivors have been healing. Three days that minorities everywhere have been living in fear.

And not one word from Donald Trump.”

“You know people use to get their news from newspapers, because professional newsrooms took separating fact from fiction seriously. And employed people who had studied how to do that. But now people get their news on Facebook by sharing. Or as it used to be called, hearsay.” Bill Maher
