Another excellent article: I had no idea that Bloomberg is this racist. I’m glad you’re helping bring this to the forefront.

I think racism/sexism/homophobia/Christianity are the four legs of a stool, as described by some critical race theorists (Ignatiev?), which explains why extremely conservative men are usually shaken by any assertion of equality in these arena (take, for example, Pence). So, as you point out at the end of your article, sexism and racism are definitely related: they’re intrinsically linked in the context of white supremacy, as is homophobia and the anti-any other but Christian religion (for example, Muslim, at this point in history, is the ‘anti’-Christian that threatens to knock off a foot of the white supremacist footstool.) I would add economics to this, but it seems that the presence of these 4 traits leads to economic advantage on the basis of vast, unearned benefit…

Thanks again for these great thoughts…
