The Problem With Bernie & Trump

Both men thrive off of white identity politics, whilst at the same time telling others to “Just Be American”.

By encouraging the minimization of other people’s interest/identity; the white-identity by default becomes THE established identity.
These men are not opposed to “identity politics” — they just want it be THEIR identity.

Why?

Because it gives them the power to define OUR national identity, our national narrative.
“Oh, Honeys, hush. We can’t be touching all ‘em negro issues too much! We be diverse now. We done made it to that ol’ mountaintop, your lovely negro minister King talked about.”

All that ethnic identity scares us white folk!

Nigg** Just be American!

Just be colorblind.

“The most identifiable feature of fame-oriented black conservatives is their absurdist addiction to the inconsequential issue of whether or not blacks choose to identify as African American or just American. They call this the “unhyphenated American” movement.”
“While this issue is unimportant to regular people, it is deeply important to pseudo-intellectual, fame-oriented black conservatives, because it is the key issue that they use to ingratiate themselves with white conservatives.”
