I fully agree, Kia. Up until JFK the Democrats lead in bigotry while the GOP specialized in corporate corruption. But with demographics chamging, the GOP started the “Southern Strategy” that morphed into dog-whistling White bigotry nationwide. Now all the White tribalist are concentrated into a single party — roughly 40%, or about the same number that followed Hitler before he gathered absolute power.

It’s ironic but not unusual that victimized Whites are backing the same super rich corporate powers who are exploiting them because they have been diverted by GOP shills and the Donald playing to their tribal bigotry.
