@21, Well no shit the data exists but it's not kept in an open-access database that Steve Bannon or any federal employee can just pull up and query peoples' personal information or locate all the queer democrats (wtf dude seriously).

No one's personal census info is privy to public consumption. Census data is only reported as aggregate statistics. The census requests all sorts of personal information and there are good reasons for doing so - they'll even explain it for you here:

https://www.census.gov/acs/www/about/why….

The fact that gay and trans advocates are asking to be counted, and the Trump administration is actively removing these these questions from the census, should be your first set of clues that there is a benefit to being counted.

@14 one group not being counted is a terrible reason to not count another one but it says here you're allowed to check more than one box in the race section:

@4/7, Someone who doesn't care wouldn't bother to comment. You're pulling that conservative mind-trick where you put the onus on trans people/allies for caring too much, rather than just admit to yourself that trans people make you uncomfortable.

sf has bigger hills than seattle and it rains here and our bike share is expanding 10-fold because it was so popular

More misogynist than racist but I see shades of both. You will never hear Sean Spicer speak to a man with that much condescension.

They aren't doing anything new or different. This is just a desperate attempt to change the conversation from Trump's many failures.

@19, A white man traveled to NYC to - as paraphrased by the police who arrested him - "make a statement" by killing black people in the media capital of the world, I can only assume to maximize the attention and impact of his actions. His motives, like Dylan Roof's (another terrorist who is rarely called one, but whose actions were called out by the president at the time), were explicitly political and racial.

I do not ask that Trump be held to an exceptional standard here. Quite the opposite, I would expect the same of of him as I would any other president, were he capable of living up to those expectations. In reality, I expect him to do exactly has he has: to not comment at all on any racially/politically motivated acts of terror that fall outside his highly selective world view, because he lacks the maturity and the conscience to do so.

@7, Race in the US* is political (*it's also political everywhere). White nationalists have political goals: they believe our country was built by and for people of European lineage and some of them believe genocide ('peaceful' or otherwise) is the solution. From my perspective, a white nationalist killing non-white people indiscriminately is no different than a Muslim killing infidels indiscriminately. The goal of these killings is to inspire fear and chaos that extends beyond the body count. It's terrorism. Or genocide. Or terrorism by way of genocide. Others' mileage may vary, and while I consider that an unfortunate consequence of how we speak of terrorism in the 21st century, so be it. The semantics argument is beside the point.

The point is, whatever you call this murder, it would be completely normal for a president who is the leader of a large, multiethnic nation and has the temperament of an otherwise ordinary adult human to speak up about a killing of this nature, which is why it is way above the dignity of our current president.

Presidents usually weigh in on acts of terrorism, even when only one person is killed. I would only expect Trump to do that if the terrorist were Muslim though. White nationalists don't ring the same bells for him.
