WHY FOLKS KEEP ON VOTING FOR POLITICIANS WHO CONSTANTLY SCREW THEM
NOTE: I've seen this rationale many times before. The idea that there must be someone - some "group" - that can be looked down on to ensure that you and your group aren't at the bottom of the heap even though it is. Your pride, your welfare, your success depends on someone else - some "other group" - being worse off than you are. It is this "wounded pride" - the fact that "Whites" are no longer inevitably at the top of the nation's social hierarchy (a Black President, for example) that drives support for Donald Trump. This piece beautifully illustrates just how this works.
Good Day Folks!
