    Samantha started out by reminding us that Donald Trump is not the only white person to have brought his own "racist potato salad to the GOP's church picnic."

    For example, there is Rep. Steve King, who once said about Mexican people, “For every one that is a valedictorian, there are another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and have calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”

    One woman said she felt that people use "Black lives matter" as "a chant, to taunt." And, when asked to say "Black lives matter," the interviewees were quick to say "All lives matter" instead.

    And another labeled them as a "domestic terrorist group."

    The Sam Squad did report that eventually most people did want to understand. However, this was largely because they were faced with "an actual black person forcing them to think critically."
