Trump is a vote for racism. We can read whatever we want into it, but repeatedly telling people they are racist because of how they vote IS NOT WORKING. Telling people they are racist because they don’t identify as BLM supporters are NOT WORKING. Telling people they are racist when they truly believe they are not is turning people off the Democratic Party, even when Democratic policies like Medicare for all is overwhelmingly popular.
This race should have been easy. Trump’s presidency has been disastrous for all sorts of reasons. But instead of articulating why middle-class white people in predominantly white areas with their own problems should give a shit about the plight of black people, we have repeatedly just told them that they are racist if they don’t care or if they have to balance that against their other more direct concerns. What the fuck does that accomplish?
