Democrats, Not Trump, Racialize Our Politics

A party obsessed with race won't have much luck reaching out to non-elite whites.

Trump's sally during the first Republican primary debate that "this country doesn't have time" for "total political correctness" sent a signal that the reigning presumptions about oppression were finally vulnerable. The message resonated. Democrats will have to do much more than invoke traditional Democratic class warfare to convince non-elite white voters that the party does not see them as one of America's biggest problems.
