    Nor, as we see, does socialism.

    So, uh, what exactly were they protesting?

    I've read 3 articles on the matter, I still have no idea, and that just about extinguished my interest in reading any more.

    I know nothing about either of the candidates in question, so I can't comment on character or policies myself, but I find the situation to be pretty sad. As far as I can tell, the only thing the "protesters" are angry about is the possibility that a white person might win the election.

    Then again, there could be more substance to it that is being hidden by sloppy reporting but given today's political climate, I wouldn't be surprised if that's all there really was to it.

    When questioned, they don't know.
