You want to talk group think and it’s danger — and express concern about Black people’s thinking in voting overwhelmingly for one political party over the other? Guess you haven’t heard about the lunacy that has caused people to take foolishness as facts. Yep, the groupthink that has compelled people to vote against their own best interests (healthcare; fair wages; climate; etc.) in this recent election because they bought some of the most asinine rumors as truth? And those who were manipulated to revile the missteps of one candidate and completely ignore absolute lies of another.
Will you just going to ignore the mentality of the believer who travels across state lines to investigate a child sex ring at a pizza parlor, because some news fakers posted it — including promotion by the son of a Cabinet nominee? https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/local/pizzagate-from-rumor-to-hashtag-to-gunfire-in-dc/2016/12/06/4c7def50-bbd4–11e6–94ac-3d324840106c_story.html?client=safari
Or, are you ignoring the other fake-news believers who have been claiming that the horrible Sandy Hook tragedy was faked — and threatens the parent of a victim. https://www.google.com/amp/miami.cbslocal.com/2016/12/07/feds-sandy-hook-hoaxer-threatens-parent-of-dead-child/amp/?client=safari
Or maybe the groupthink that has led to white nationalists emulating Hitler in the Nation’s Capital. http://dcist.com/2016/11/maggianos_pledges_profits_from_whit.php
Perhaps, just maybe those groupthinkers who are practicing the most vile, hateful acts. spreading across this land that we have seen in decades. https://www.splcenter.org/20161129/ten-days-after-harassment-and-intimidation-aftermath-election
Or will you completely ignore the groupthink that emboldened a young, white male into a church to kill Black worshippers? https://www.google.com/amp/www.nydailynews.com/amp/news/national/charleston-church-shooter-dylann-roof-murder-trial-begins-article-1.2901739?client=safari
We should be concerned about groupthink for sure — especially when it’s distorted and simply dangerous. Groupthink can be good (civil rights fighters) or evil (KKK>Apartheid>Hitler>ClimateDeniers>TooManyTrumpists). I like #groupthink when it rejects hate and stands up loudly against it. If true justice for all is the group thought, I’m all in. — http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/unity-event-protests-expected-white-nationalists-visit-44015489
