Thank You for the insightful story, such wealth of personal experience is a priceless asset for the forum, and I appreciate You sharing it with us. Though I've read about the recent study regarding the face recognition software to which the article refereed, and its current disadvantages, I don't see Tlaib even slightly implying on the matter of the subject, rather straightforward going into the opposite extreme of racial profiling, and evading to respond when asked directly about the logic consequences of her statements, from point of view of morality of such practice. This consistent fashion of her behavior, disregard for any accountability while mainly politicizing on race/skin color, don't seem like coming from mere innocent "lack of awareness", but rather a carefully thought through agenda to appeal to the lowest feelings of the public. Which has a great potential of widening the gap between the different sectors, and thus causing more divide and confrontation within the diverse fabric of the society. From what I observe, there's nothing naive about it, it's banal bigotry. Aiming in the long term to weaken the society, without even the minimal effort to conceal her anger and hate. However it's Your country, and I'm naturally interested more in the specific subject of the I/P forum, rather than overall criticism of the US domestic policy outside of this scope. That said, compared to the diverse fabric of the Israeli society, given the context and proximity of regional conflicts, seeing how much race and skin color are framing the daily mainstream political discourse in the US, causes much unease. Such a lexicon, though naturally in use in all human society, is absent from political discourse, and considered to a great degree to be taboo in my country. We talk openly about the different parts of the society along the lines of the various diasporas that gathered in the country, but not politicizing on race and skin color.
