Well since I have friends who work IN THOSE FACTORIES and are actually in those Unions and they can tell you first hand how pervasive a lot of those racist sentiments are in organized labor, the same organized labor that historically was used to keep minorities OUT of lucrative blue-collar jobs (Google racism in organized labor) it's not that hard of a stretch. If YOU are still making the argument that Trump's appeal was economic and that it was just coincidental that we elected an openly racist, mysogonistic, unqualified TV star with NO GOVERNMENT experience AFTER the first Black President in history who was also running against the first serious female candidate in American history then I don't know what to tell YOU. Pure coincidence. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
