There really is no comparison. H. Bush won in 2000 but barely lost the popular vote. Trump lost the popular vote by 5 million votes. Obviously more people wanted HRC to be president (or more likely, didn't want Trump). Trump got REAL lucky. He beat the least popular democratic nominee ever.

Truth be told I wish we didn't have affirmative action because I would love it if people were judged by skill, qualification, and experience. The truth is, in too many instances, they are not.
It quite easy to solve race problem just apply the law equally and don't play favorite or give advantages via the government or the law because of someone race, sex, or any other factor. If you think it cause still unfairness due to individual bigotry then the only solution is segregation and division by lumping people in their own areas which we said wasn't right 50 years ago.

You can't stop individuals discriminating or be bigot at one another.

I didn't say I didn't like the condition. I'm stating the condition. Maybe it's you who doesn't like the fact that Trump lost the popular vote. How does it feel to be the minority?

Note: I defend the minority vote. I've said this many times: This country is founded in part on the idea that the majority does not infringe upon the rights of the minority. That's why we have religious freedom. I don't believe "majority rules" should be the end all that be all. The majority is just as susceptible of being wrong as the individual. That being said, the majority thought Trump shouldn't be president. That's a fact and you can interpret that any which way you want so long as you know it as just a stand alone fact that doesn't insinuate anything other than what it is.

Are you just rushing through your replies because your grammar and sentence structure is erratic.

If you have the answer for racism then you deserve a nobel prize.

Some states are smaller than others, look at a map.

NJ much smaller then many states but more populated so should we go back whichever state has the most dense population wins, guess RI and NJ are going to have more leverage then CA and NY now.

I wonder what happened to our two Russians, Da and Nyet. As I recall, one was a Russian hacker and the other wasn't. They had some pretty good insights...

A national economic optimism index of small business owners is at its highest level ever, up 162% since the final months of President Obama’s two terms.

It's likely they know things. I'm sure they will try to "extract" as much intel from them as possible, to help track down more of the ISIS leadership.
