TWITTER: Tucker Shaw's tweet about HIV/AIDS is heartbreaking, and a vivid reminder of how many lives were lost so recently in this country — and how young people innocently sometimes don't truly grasp it:
I overheard a young man on the train on the way home today, talking to another young man. Holding hands. In college, I guessed. About that age anyway. Much younger than I am.— Tucker Shaw (@tucker_shaw) September 18, 2018

POLITICO: One of Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis's top donors, 67-year-old Steven Alembik, tweeted of President Obama, in all caps, F*CK THAT MUSLIM [N-word]. When called on it, he said this was how people spoke when he was growing up in the '50s. He was born in 1951, so I guess he was spitting the
N-word before age 10? (Plus, lots of things that were common in the '50s aren't appropriate today — like segregated businesses!) He went on to defend his tweet by saying he was angry, he's an emotional guy, he shouldn't have to censor himself and hey, Chris Rock uses the N-word onstage. The white cluelessness is strong with this one. DeSantis, you will recall, is he of the monkey this up scandal — and his opponent, Andrew Gillum, would be Florida's first black guv.
