It gets tiring to hear these old white politicians apologize for their racist comments. Wouldn't it be easier to simply find a way to live in this nation and serve as a national leader in harmony with one another ... instead of playing to the fears and hatred hidden in our national conscience?

“I regret my choice of words and in no way meant to offend anyone,” he said.How can we address racism in a positive manner if we keep electing racists?
