As if on cue my February 24th op ed piece about likely Republican racial concerns about inter-marriage, the Thursday February 25th page one top story in the Washington Post was “Biden’s nominees of color hit snags”.

You can read the entire story here.

In viewing on February 24th the exciting story on WETA here in DC of how NASA managed to land its complex exploration machine on Mars my wife and I were delighted to see the racial and sexual diversity of the people who made this remarkable feat happen.

Would that this example stretch uniformly across our society.

Clearly the education system of so many successful colleges and universities which produced these many multi racial bisexual NASA employees was color blind.

Now the evident racism of the Republican Party just gets highlighted again.

We expect that the new Attorney General’s investigation of the assault on the US Capitol on January 6th will further substantiate the ties to our former President.

America desperately needs a balanced two party system. Trump’s control of the Republican Party will increasingly be seen by its members as a blind alley to defeat as the effect of its dominating racist elements gives further membership of independents and defecting Republicans to a moderately governing Biden majority.
