The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations


I’d love to say that I came up with this line, but all credit must go to Jamelle Bouie, staff writer for the New York Times. It’s hidden deep in an article today covering our political “situation” here in America. You know, the one leading up to the 2024 Presidential election.

Wow – the soft bigotry of low expectations. It just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? Asking the reader to think about its meaning is devastating by itself; putting it in the context of our political landscape is a kind of grim poetry.

For gods sake, let’s raise those expectations, people.
