Opposite Day and White Statecraft

Top: White terrorist with his foot on Nancy Pelosi’s desk. Bottom: The Birth of a Nation racistly depicts Black legislator with feet on desk

My mind is still processing the picture of a white terrorist with his foot up on Nancy Pelosi’s desk. And the song “What It Feels Like” by Nipsey Hussle and JAY-Z brought it up again with this line:

“You let them cr**k*rs storm your Capitol, put they feet up on your desk.
And yet you talkin’ tough to me. I lost all my little respect.”
