    The photo was taken at a 2015 campaign event in Iowa as Clinton attempted to win over voters by appearing to be a decent person who cares about others.

    Trump won enough votes in Iowa to prove that a substantial percentage of Iowans don’t particularly want a president who is a decent person who cares about others. So there goes that theory…

    Yeah, but does this definition of “others” include white males?

    You should read this Freddie Deboer piece:

    Racism and sexism and homophobia are uniquely pernicious and require our special attention; that special attention presents no conflict at all with our absolute need to help those white or straight or male people who suffer too. Anyone who sees a contradiction between the two halves of that sentence is someone who is not actually committed to the fight for human progress.

    You didn’t read that Freddie DeBoer piece, did you?

    Let me quote:

    If you believe that all people deserve equal rights, you will necessarily be a feminist, because those rights are so routinely denied to women. If you believe that all people deserve economic security, you will necessarily fight against racism, because economic security is so routinely denied to people of color. If you believe all people deserve to live lives of human dignity, you will necessarily fight for LGBTQ people, because dignity has so routinely been denied to them. Any political platform that fights to guarantee the rights that I have enumerated here is necessarily feminist, anti-racist, and so on, because the people that suffer from bigotry are those who have been denied them. That such a platform would also help a white straight man in the destitute corridors of Appalachia could only be perceived as a flaw by those who have fundamentally misunderstood the essential question of contemporary politics.

    Liberals figured this out years ago.

    MLK’s dream was that “little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” The SJW’s dream is to make sure white people don’t “culturally appropriate” anything.

    And you’ll just have to forgive me if I prefer the road-tested version that’s been around for decades over the buggy version so popular today that a) doesn’t work b) is insultingly dumb and c) leads to the election of Donald Trump and the rise of “white nationalism.”

    Liberals are happy to help the white guy in Appalachia and the black kid who was shot by the cops without cause, so I have no idea what you’re going on about.

    If the white guy in Appalachia wants to be a resentnik because there are liberals who have the audacity to devote some effort to defending the black kid, then there’s not much that I can do about that.

    Look, I get it. I realize that it’s impossible to even suggest that minorities have suffered any indignities without pissing you off.

    I also get that it would be wise to avoid talking about white privilege. Seriously, I wouldn’t do it for a variety of reasons.

    What you refuse to understand is that there is an element of this society that resents the very notion of lifting a finger to help minorities, and there is no way that the Democratic party will avoid offending them. The Democratic party would have to revert to its pre-Civil Rights Dixiecrat days in order to change that.

    In any case, I have no doubt that if the phrase “white privilege” was eliminated from the English language that you personally would still find something to complain about. You like playing the white wounded warrior, and there won’t be any way to please you.

    Let’s remember that you’re the one who brought this up, and you did so when it was completely off topic.

    And the funny thing is that I sort of agree with you. I understand that whites in America do not want to feel as if race ever provided them with any kind of advantage or less of a disadvantage, even though it should be painfully obviously that it did. Ironically, minorities have to mince their words because they remain outnumbered.

    James, I understand your point, I really do, but …

    I’m the only liberal among my parents and 8 siblings, and believe me, I’ve heard virtually all the derogatory remarks about liberals and their constituencies that can be made. Many of our family friends are very conservative and I hear the same stuff from them as I do among family members. Now, I’m not thin-skinned, I can take it. However, I’m tired of the constant whining by conservatives that they’re permanently victimized by liberals.

    It’s not as if those salt-of-the-earth rural and alienated conservative suburban white folks never run down or denigrate liberals, refer to California as that place full of fruits and nuts, and stuff like that. It’s a 2 way street, but to hear the opinionista, it’s only liberals. ‘eff that.

    This election has re-sanctified the notion that conservative white people are constant regular victims of liberal condescension and patronizing bullying.

    How about if conservative white folks owning their current economic and social condition and stop complaining about being victimized by liberals? You know, that personal responsibility thing?

    I am not a Trump-supporting conservative. I’m a white male liberal who voted for Obama twice and Hillary this time without reservation, hesitation, or regret. I believe racism is stupid, sexism dumb.

    And yet when Colin Kaepernick, a millionaire frat boy who apparently made it all the way through college without learning a damn thing, tells me – a guy who takes two trains to get to work and won’t make a 60th of his salary in the next 20 years– that I’m privileged because I’m white and he’s oppressed because he’s black, I know it’s bullshit.

    Conservatives know it’s bullshit. Most liberals know it’s bullshit. Politically neutral people know it’s bullshit. How come the social justice types think it’s so compelling?

    Actually I do understand.
    Colin Kaepernick represents liberal Democrats? Perhaps to many Trump voters he does. Whatever, these are generally resentful people for whom, if it’s not a guy like Colin, it would be whatever other symbol of liberalism they could latch on to.

    I’m not impressed with these people – they just had a hand in electing a man who is relentlessly unthoughtful, a racist, a crude boor, and much less. To me that reflects more negative on them than it does about Colin Kaepernick.

    We rejected the right wing idea that gay people make awful parents, not because it wasn’t true -I mean, I’m sure there some horrible parents in the gay community– but because it wasn’t true all the time. To think that gay people make awful parents would mean you would be wrong some, if not most, of the time.

    The same thing is true if you think white equals privileged and black equals oppressed. You will be wrong sometimes. Thinking this way will lead you to error. It’s inevitable. The only way to avoid it is don’t think that way.

    Well, I don’t know how to characterize the fact that about 50% of Republican voters have consistently since 2009 embraced the toxic Birther suspicions. I think my “resentful conservative white voters’ is a very mild characterization of the Republican base.

    Yes, of course there are distinct ideological/policy differences between a Republican-Trump voter and a Democratic-Clinton voter, however when I look back at the vitriol and obstruction directed toward a moderate Democrat like Barack Obama, I see no other way to characterize a majority of these people as angry and resentful.
