What Centering The White Working Class Would Mean For Democrats
Marcus H. Johnson

While I disagree just a smidge that working class whites are a lost cause or at least that we fellow anti-racist whites should probably back off them as a constituency, I mostly agree with this piece.

All I can say is that I’m trying to get to more of us to deprogram them. All the active resistance I do against my privilege doesn’t mean squat if I’m the only one.

If I can do it, anyone can. I agree. If we’re ever going to have a real worker’s/union movement, acknowledging our unintentional participation in a white supremacist system and hearing working class people of color is the only way it will happen.

Like what you read? Give Breck Murray a round of applause.
