I am generally going to avoid politics in this blog, but this is only tangentially about politics. The storming of the Capital of the United States was not just by a mob, it was by a mob of white supremacists. FiveThirtyEight does an excellent job of discussing this in Storming The U.S. Capitol Was About Maintaining White Power In America so I don’t feel I need to add much. But, a key point is that FiveThirtyEight, being who they are, provides evidence to support their claim. This is not just an opinion. I don’t think the importance of this can be overstated.
