    I saw three on the front page just now. Why is race such a huge deal? We all have some sort of race, why is it such a big deal if some people are one race or another?

    You should see the News & Politics section. It's infected with "Israel vs Palestine" debate.

    https://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007392Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

    Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Asians are underrepresented on TV.

    Someone's just trying to make sure that doesn't happen here.

    Not that they don't have an infinitely larger presence here.
