Equal opportunity in no way guaranties equal outcome.

...but for sure there is not equal opportunity. Its been measure time and again....same exact resume sent out but the ones with white male names get as much as 75% more response than non white male names. In face to face interviews the less qualified white male in much more likely to get the job offer...or apartment in the case of Rump who was caught explicitly discriminating.

Rump lost the popular vote remember...so I'm pretty sure I do understand what the majority of americans think about him.

As for fixing it there are expected to be renewed impeachment calls next week that will grow louder until congress flips in 2018 and it happens ;)

We do not elect our presidents by popular vote. We elect people like Pelosi and Schumer by popular vote.

If the next election did away with the electoral college system and used the popular vote method, Trump would win by an even greater margin. Americans are pissed off and getting angry at congressional assholes.

The popular vote includes the often fraudulent, illegal, under-informed, ghetto vote. Those who only vote for more freebies.

Equal opportunity in no way guaranties equal outcome.
Equal opportunity NEVER guaranties equal outcome nor should it.
...but for sure there is not equal opportunity. Its been measure time and again....
There is equal opportunity if one is educated, willing to work, and does not show up for a job interview wearing a backwards baseball cap.
That has been measured time and again, with the same results. Unqualified candidates are given the opportunities they deserve.
same exact resume sent out but the ones with white male names get as much as 75% more response than non white male names. In face to face interviews the less qualified white male in much more likely to get the job offer...or apartment in the case of Rump who was caught explicitly discriminating.

What you write comes from liberal sophomoric college students. Please read Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams or other economists who have studied the issues in much greater depth.

There is nothing wrong with discrimination; I teach my grandchildren to discriminate and it serves them well.
You simplisticaly refer to RACIAL discrimination without understanding its root cause and true nature.

Those who do not read have no advantage over those who cannot read.

No b.s. or cherry picking abiut it and the results have been confirmed many times in blind studies. I'm sorry it does not fit your personal agenda, but it is very real.

War makes for strange bedfellows. Again you do not understand human nature or human history. Keep dreaming, Trump will not be impeached.

Miss the point but argue the details. You assumed to know what half the country was thinking.

Let me phrase it more like a wanna be lawyer; You assumed to know what a high enough percentage of the population to elect Trump was thinking.

The effective people elected Trump. The ineffective people (you) are still trying to figure out what happened. Assume racism and Russia but you're wrong as usual.

As far as I know discrimination based on race is against the law. If this occurred "many times" as you put it then "many times" people should have been fined or put in jail. Where are all these people? Where can I get access to all these blind studies? Or should I just go to the pet store and buy my own dog whistle?

Pure nonsense. Your alleged "studies" have been refuted many, many times. Please post a legitimate study that confirms your position. I'll show you dozens that refute it.

In many, many court cases, discrimination has often been alleged but never (or very rarely) proven in court.

It is illegal and very difficult to prove in hiring. Google will find you all the studies you care to read, but here's and example

New research on hiring bias found resumes bearing names traditionally held by blacks and Hispanics are just as likely to lead to callbacks and job interviews as those bearing white-sounding names.

The findings, announced last week by the University of Missouri, diverge from the results of a famous study from more than a decade ago that found Lakishas and Jamals were far less likely to get job interviews than Emilys and Gregs.

President Trump would have ran a different campaign if the Presidency was on the popular vote. [-X
