Tony Norman names the tune that Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis is whistling. A snippet:
Welcome to another installment of the wild world of unconscious, accidental racism in the Trump era. In this world, we’re either being gaslighted by evil people who know they’re racist or we’ve put into important places people so stupid and self-unaware that they don’t know the depths of their racism.
Mr. DeSantis is a case in point. His use of the racist dog whistle was so obvious when leveled at his black opponent that even Fox News was compelled to rebuke it as “inappropriate” a few hours later.
