I heard an interview this morning on NPR with Attica Locke, creator of the show "Empire", talking about the election results. She said that it was great we finally had "people who looked" like her to be in positions of power, that Trump was a nationalist which she termed "barely a dog whistle for white nationalism", and that "white folks" were destroying the Constitution because they didn't want to "share American freedoms with people who looked different from them".

Attica here displays everything wrong with identity politics, and I'm disgusted that people actually listen to her.
