I have an uncle who lives in Arkansas.


.He is a very nice person, extremely religious and charitable. He raised 2 children who all contribute to the planet as teachers/coaches. I'd never heard him say a single racist word. He has served his church and community as a leader. His son coached Black athletes and he was always gracious towards their parents. However, he has listened to Rush Limbaugh daily since the early 90s. He is a staunch Republican and you cannot really discuss politics with him.

The day after the 2008 election, I saw his demeanor change completely. His bashing of Obama never used any racist overtones, but I couldn't help but feel that Limbaugh's bashing of Obama was involved. I can't follow him on Facebook any more due to Obama trashing and Trump adulation. He doesn't even post family stuff anymore. It is just retweets of Trump stuff.

When I talk to him, we just talk family and sports.
