Like race card , PC, Identity politics is a dead giveaway of white people bothered by other points of view. And, yeah, the alt-left (also white) led by deeply humiliated Bernie is leading.
Academic research, however, lends credibility to one of claims made by recent critics of identity politics: whites often believe multiculturalism excludes them. Clinton’s campaign theme, however, was “Stronger Together,” and she included whites under her large umbrella (notably, she and her running-mate are both white).
Studies also show that antiracism and feminism, not simply racial and gender diversity, threaten whites and men, who think of anti-discrimination as a zero-sum game. Clinton did not cause this irrational thinking.
Way to go, Bernie! Your deep humiliation is shining bright
It appears that in the aftermath of a monumental but nonetheless failed presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders remains most comfortable in the spot that made him a loser: trying to separate class and race.
some more thoughts about the oh, so neglected WWC from Paul Krugman
Bernie keeps beating the white drum – only whites are workers in his world. First, the use of “we” is inappropriate. Second – are non-whites lazy bums? Bot workers?😱
another good take from NY Magazine
I’ve decided that the best thing for Democrats to do for the next four years is to stop caring about “identity politics” and focus on the needs of white men all around the country. From now on, as a woman who makes her living and pays taxes in the blue bubble of California, I will shut up and enter a medically-induced coma and only come out when liberal white men ask me to come out. I will develop a special, secret knock that these liberal men can use to wake me up inside my sleeping pod when they deem it safe for me to emerge and start ruining elections again.I hope that other women and minorities will do what I have done. Democrats can either care about income inequality or we can care about “women and minorities,” but we can’t do both.
