I am still digesting the presidential debate like a heavy meal that I ate too late in the evening. Of course I thought that Hillary was the winner on every point, and I believe that she profited from standing beside and up to Trump - Trump's interruptions, his glares and stares, his attention grabbing sniffles, his speaking in bumper sticker slogans, his snarling tone of voice should have been a warning to any possible Trump voter that the man is beyond unstable - but those may be the very qualities that appeal to them.

Trump actually has his own history separate and apart from presidential racial scare politics of being a self-styled tough guy on crime. The start point was the now infamous Central Park Five case in 1989. The five were young African-American and Latino youths charged with the rape and beating of a white female jogger in New York's Central Park.
