This is Why You Hate Me

The places with the most immigrants voted against the anti-immigrant candidate.

They don’t hate and fear immigrants because they live with them. The parties didn’t fall for the caricaturized version of each other because they know each other.

If we’re going to get out of this mess, we have to break the grip of segregation. Online, and especially off, we need to come together and make our own judgments about one another

So says Dave Pell in an essay on Medium here
