Earlier this summer, the New York Times reported that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have “the worst favorable ratings of any presumed Democratic or Republican nominee in decades,” echoing today’s sentiment that we’ll all be forced to vote for the lesser of two evils come November.
Both Clinton and Trump have given us reason(s) to doubt their abilities as presidential hopefuls, and “Call It Off” pop artist Shamir has perfectly captured how this terrible reality feels, especially for people of color in America.
Sipping a mug with Clinton’s face on it, most likely filled with hot, hot tea, Shamir’s on-point tweet reads, “Tfw u have 2 vote 4 da white lady who wuld lock her door if u were on her lawn instead of da man who would shoot u.”

Well said, Shamir.
