Their Need for Race-Status–Reaping the Horrid Extremity of It Now
For White Marginals Race-Status is pretty much all that matters and all that matters for them will have been wholly upended as we close in on white minority status here because the revolting behavior we see is not and was never about their economic reality. Were it anywhere near primarily about that they’d have never ditched unions in such percentages, never have signed on to the Corporate Shill party. Their economic lives have never grown under the Corporate Shill Party. Their perceived status vis-a-vis people of color has been continually and fraudulently coddled. That is what what matters to them.
They already understand themselves as a trampled racial minority, numbers be damned.
And yet there are still those who understand 2016 as some desperate economic revolt. I could never sign on to the Econ-Centric Trump Win analysis in ‘16 and it’s even more ludicrous now.
Sadly Neglected By the Left. Really?
Republicans had won them on a continuous race-based dog-whistle platform well prior to ‘16, beginning in ’68, and nailed them down with explicit and continuous drumbeat racial animus appeals in ‘16 and we just now begin to reap its horrid extremity.
