For centuries, white people have wanted their success at the expense of “the other” both here and abroad. From colonization, slavery and attempted genocide of Natives (they are still here FYI) to Jim Crow and school segregation. It is simply dishonest and ahistorical to pretend the majority of white working class people “just want jobs.” We were not allowed to use the programs created by the New Deal, like Social Security, and Black veterans were barred from the loans and education that came with the GI Bill. The white working class wants economic success that does not feel on par with the other groups that make up this country. That has always been evident.
