    No, those who most urgently need to have a voice in the public forum, representation in government, are the poor. The poor have effectively been blocked out since the 1990s. Economic status is about survival survival itself. The majority of US poor are white.

    Years of work went into more deeply splitting the poor apart by race, and this trickles up. Liberal media regularly run articles defining all white people one of several ugly stereotypes.

This has not been conducive to building good racial relationships.
