Thank you for this. I should perhaps have been clear that I didn't intend my apology for Trump to be a punchline; audiences took it that way until, as I said, reality became clear and they no longer did.

I've been corrected by my sister and provost that it's not *only* uneducated white men who back Trump. Yes. The uneducated were the scale needed to get him where he is; the educated, powerful, and privileged keep him there, enabling him.

I am impressed -- and not a little jealous -- that Boston U just brought on Dr. Kendi to start a center for anti-racist research.
