Busted myths

Run, don’t walk, to this piece in the Atlantic by Ta-Nehisi Coates called “The First White President.” For those wondering why so many were obsessed with “the White working class,” and what that had to do with an election where the circus clown (Coates prefers “carnival barker”) Donald J. Trump prevailed in every economic category of White people for no reason other than that he was White (to be fair, I would add that he was also male)… Coates gives us the rather unsettling answers.
Coates’s thesis, which has the troubling attribute of evidence, is that the handing of the potential to destroy all life on this planet to a clown simply because of his race might be either the ultimate demonstration of White privilege or the ultimate expiation of White guilt (though most people on this planet are not even White).
Go. Now.
