"'It is deeply disturbing to hear a Supreme Court justice endorse racist ideas from the bench of the nation's highest court,' Reid said on the Senate floor. 'The only difference between the ideas endorsed by [Donald] Trump and Scalia is that Scalia has a robe and a lifetime appointment.' This was not the first time Scalia has made controversial comments regarding race from the bench. Two years ago, when the justices were debating the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act, Scalia called the historic measure a 'racial entitlement' that should be struck down."
Spitting paranoia, dripping with sore-loser petulance, Trump has stoked the fury of the mob in some of his supporters. A Milwaukee sheriff urged insurrection with the words, 'Pitchforks and torches time... Bury Trump in a landslide. Restore U.S. honor with giant defeat of the fearmongering demagogue."
"For Donald Trump to say on national television that young, educated blacks have 'an actual advantage,' even in this seemingly enlightened age, is ludicrous enough to be injurious to this country`s already poisoned racial atmosphere. To claim that he actually would 'prefer' to be one only adds insult to the injury."
