Sam Smith - The white male support for Trump came in part thanks to several decades of liberal dissin' of white males and the desertion of economic issues that once were at the heart of liberalism. Recently it has gotten worse. Think what the currently favorite liberal phrase "white privilege" sounds like to an underpaid white guy working two jobs.
Or consider that while there are 1.8 million unemployed black males, there are 5.6 million unemployed white males.
You don't have to stop beating up on Wall Street or ethnic prejudice to open up a more reasonable view of white male America, realizing that while blacks and latinos have, on a percentage basis, a worse time of it, there are millions of white males in a similar fix. And each lives as an individual not a percentage.
The liberal disinterest in and mistreatment of struggling whites has been a great spur for the rise of the right and needs to stop. A coalition of black, latino and labor leaders could turn our ethnic obsession towards a more effective economic concern. And it's way overdue.
