The phrase “white working class” is in and of itself racist claptrap. Someone who is working class is working class regardless of skin color. What does it matter if he or she is brown, or Mexican, or Asian, or white? They still have the same problem — declining factory jobs, most new jobs being low wage, etc. Those good-paying factory jobs are leaving whether you’re white, black, Mexican, or Martian.
I guess it’s just that the brown members of the working class don’t whine all the time like the white ones do, they just do what they have to do to get by, so the white ones get the press. Typical — the whiny bird gets the worm.
