It seems that identity politics is all the left has to throw.
One day the left may figure out that plan doesn't work.

i∑den∑ti∑ty pol∑i∑tics
noun
a tendency for people of a particular religion, race, social background, etc., to form exclusive political alliances, moving away from traditional broad-based party politics.


Iíd rather see white supremists form alliances with Christians, and Iíd rather see minorities form alliances with liberals, than see our President form an alliance with a hostile foreign adversary like weíve seen. For the first time in my life, in 2020, I will forget political issues when voting - I just want someone who has the U.S.ís best interests at heart. Thatís my only requirement.

Like everything else, it exists on both sides. Itís a shame some grown men never learned this, or are too scared to seek the truth. Either way, Sad!

Hereís an interesting article about what I believe is at the root of the Obama hatred, and Trump victory.


White threat in a browning America

How demographic change is fracturing our politics.

Ezra KleinJuly 30, 2018 6:00 am

In 2008, Barack Obama held up change as a beacon, attaching to it another word, a word that channeled everything his young and diverse coalition saw in his rise and their newfound political power: hope. An America that would elect a black man president was an America in which a future was being written that would read thrillingly different from our past.

In 2016, Donald Trump wielded that same sense of change as a threat; he was the revanchist voice of those who yearned to make America the way it was before, to make it great again. That was the impulse that connected the wall to keep Mexicans out, the ban to keep Muslims away, the birtherism meant to prove Obama couldnít possibly be a legitimate president. An America that would elect Donald Trump president was an America in which a future was being written that could read thrillingly similar to our past.

This is the core cleavage of our politics, and it reflects the fundamental reality of our era: America is changing, and fast. According to the Census Bureau, 2013 marked the first year that a majority of US infants under the age of 1 were nonwhite. The announcement, made during the second term of the nationís first African-American president, was not a surprise. Demographers had been predicting such a tipping point for years, and they foresaw more to come.


The government predicts that in 2030, immigration will overtake new births as the dominant driver of population growth. About 15 years after that, America will phase into majority-minority status ó for the first time in the nationís history, non-Hispanic whites will no longer make up a majority of the population.

That cross will come in part because Americaís black, Hispanic, Asian, and mixed-race populations are expected to grow ó indeed, the Hispanic and Asian populations are expected to roughly double, and the mixed-race population to triple. Meanwhile, the non-Hispanic white population is, uniquely, expected to fall, dipping from 199 million in 2020 to 179 million in 2060. The Census Bureau minces no words here: ďThe only group projected to shrink is the non-Hispanic White population,Ē they report.

This isnít just a statement about the future; itís a description of the present. The economist Jed Kolko notes that the most common age for white Americans is 58, for Asians itís 29, for African Americans itís 27, and for Hispanics itís 11. A new report out of the University of Wisconsin Madisonís Applied Population Lab found that white births are now outnumbered by white deaths in 26 states, up from 17 in 2014 and four in 2004.

Meanwhile, Americaís foreign-born population is projected to rise from 14 percent of the population today to 17 percent in 2060, 2 percentage points above the record set in 1890. The rise has been staggering in its speed: As recently as the 1970s, Americaís foreign-born population was under 5 percent.

The countryís gender dynamics are also in flux. Hillary Clinton was not just the first female presidential candidate to win the popular vote but the first to be nominated by a major political party. Women now make up 56 percent of college students, and are 8 percentage points more likely than men to have earned a bachelorís degree by age 29.

Demographers can and do disagree over whether these projections will hold. Perhaps Hispanic whites will begin identifying simply as whites in the coming years, much as the Irish became white in the 20th century. Race is what we make of it, and what we make of it shifts and mutates.

Another way to say that is itís often our perception of race and power that matters. In that case, though, most Americans feel the browning of America is happening even faster than the demographers report. Back in 2013, the Center for American Progress, PolicyLink, and the Rockefeller Foundation surveyed Americans and found that the median participant believed the country was 49 percent nonwhite; the correct answer was 37 percent.

I spent months talking with politicians, social psychologists, and political scientists about what happens in moments like this one, moments when a majority feels its dominance beginning to fail. The answer, attested to in mountains of studies and visible everywhere in our politics, is this: Change of this magnitude acts on us psychologically, not just electorally. It is the crucial context uniting the core political conflicts of this era ó Obama and Trumpís presidencies, the rise of reactionary new social movements and thinkers, the wars over political correctness on campuses and representation in Hollywood, the power of #MeToo and BlackLivesMatter, the fights over immigration.

Demographic change, and the fears and hopes it evokes, is one of the tectonic forces shaping this era in American life, joining income inequality and political polarization in transforming every aspect of our politics and culture. But to understand what it is doing to us as a country, we need to begin by understanding what it does to us as individuals.

The demographics of America are changing just due to the ages of the people in different races and ethnicities. There was an article about Long Island where I am, and the greatest increase in population is Hispanic and Asian Americans. We have more than half a million Hispanics here now in a place that has never had that demographic. The Asians also are very smart and in demand in NYC businesses. Whites get old, sell their houses and move out. That's what is going on here. It is expensive to live here so the only whites migrating here or remaining here have two people working with nice incomes. The average income now is $86,000, yet if you look at the jobs that are posted they are paying very substandard wages, which encourages minorities to move here, and have children because they can get close to $200 a month for food per child, and get subsidized rent because they claim they do not know where the children's Father is, and get medical too.

Apparently there was a lawyer in NYC who had a problem with it. And there was a rally in Charlottesville recently with some very fine people who think itís a big deal too.
