Why 2020 isn't quite 1968

The US in 2020 resembles 1968, but it also looks a lot like 1868, when we had an incompetent racist in the White House who encouraged mob violence, and American Whites supported Black civil rights.

The comparison with 1868 is cautionary. The Republican Party at first fought hard for Black civil rights, but soon pivoted in favor of White supremacy, to court majority voters.
