Democrats can’t have both
Brooke Butler

I totally agree with you. It is so upsetting that day one the Democrats are already back peddling. One of the main reasons I did not support Bernie Sanders out the gate during the primary was exactly this reason. I felt that he made everything about the economic message, and really did not attend to this obvious aspect of our American history. While it is never fruitful to demean an entire group of people, to act like this isn’t what is really going on means once again the Democratic party is being cowardly. The white working-class is used to being given benefits that have not been given to everyone in America. There is nothing more complicated to it than that. I will fight to continue to have this be the recognized understanding as we move forward in America, and thank you for doing the same!
