You may never have thought about her race, but the Republicans are less and less concerned about appearing not racist since Trump (well-known for his racism) became president. So you would be the exception, rather than the rule... but you support a party that is undeniably racist, so there's that.

So, you'd have to back up your position with facts to prove that you are the exception because her policies aren't terrible... otherwise you're yet another Republican claiming to have facts on your side, but the facts are decided upon after the decision has been made.

The claims that she doesn't understand how Capitalism works (noted in the article) is a joke. Capitalism, as currently perpetuated by Republicans, makes a handful of people very wealthy and the vast majority of Americans, poor and sick.

Meanwhile, the Republicans still talk about Trickle-down economics which has been roundly debunked as only plausible-sounding to the uninformed (and actually was a joke when it was first introduced*) and laud Reagan for it and his tax cuts. You do know that the Reagan tax cuts that the Republicans still model their policies on were followed by three tax rises, by Reagan, right? And it was the raised taxes that undid the damage of the tax cuts and then - shock horror - started to build the economy.
