    I am so thankful that race and gender are not the first things that spring to mind when I look at a photo.

    A white man and a black man walk into a bar. A Democrat sees them and cries racism.

    No, but they should tell the jerks in the House Freedom Caucus that if mammograms are not essential tests, the getting you prostate checked and testicular cancer monitoring isn't essential either.

    When I see a photo of people discussing an issue that cuts across both genders and all races I am glad I notice only white men are present.
