No, not all Trump voters are racist

As Joe Biden is declared the winner in the 2020 presidential election, one prominent theme in his statements has been the need to heal political hostilities and end the mutual demonization that has made American public life so toxic in recent years. This is not only a worthy goal but an urgently important one. Yet many Biden supporters are clearly unprepared to heed that plea as they fall back on familiar tropes, branding the 71 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump with the scarlet “R.” In the words of New York Times columnist Charles Blow, the close results of the election show that “many of our fellow countrymen and women are either racists or accommodate racists or acquiesce to racists.”
