This is bad news:

"Arthur Jones, a Holocaust denier described as a Nazi by the Illinois Republican Party, won the Republican primary on Tuesday in the state’s Third Congressional District, a heavily Democratic district that includes part of Chicago and its suburbs, according to The Associated Press."

The sad reality is that there is an amazing amount of white people who are abject racists. And of course, they support Trump.

Then there are the rest of us who don't consider ourselves racists but have implicit biases.

I heard an interesting discussion about implicit biases on NPR's Hidden Brain.The discussion was entitled: "Radio Replay: The Mind of the Village." The description says: A culture of racism can infect us all. On this week's Radio Replay, we discuss the implicit biases we carry that have been forged by the society around us."

It's informative and worth listening to. Scroll down to March 16, 2018, "Radio Replay: The Mind of the Village."

Elsewhere, the abject racists are still at it:

1. White nationalists using the name, Unite the Right, want to hold another rally in Charlottesville, VA again this summer, and are suing after being denied a permit.

2. In another development, Unite the Right organizers are being sued for last summer's violent rally:

"The Alt-Right is Going on Trial in Charlottesville, VA: The organizers of the 'Unite the Right' Rally are Accused of a 'Direct Conspiracy to Commit Violence'" by Jane Coaston, vox.com, March 8, 2018.
