This is pretty good:
The Democrats’ White-People Problem

Basically, there is a lot of analysis here but the main point here (it is point #4 in the article) is this: Racism Is a White Problem, Not a Working-Class Problem

It doesn't say it this way but this is kind of my take on it. Virtually all white people are racist to some degree or another, even the wealthy, elite white people. But the elites generally get to pretend that they aren't racist, and instead blame all poor white people for racism. What is infuriating about this is that it is the rich people who have benefitted the most from systemic racism, whether they themselves are virulent racists or not. Somehow or other we have to communicate this to the white working class, that they are also victims of this same system that these smug, wealthy jerks are profiting from.

Diaz Barragan had that one coming. You don't sit on a panel with two black women and say that racism exists in America because of Donald Trump. What the woman who put her in her place could have said is "it's not because of Donald Trump, it's because of Donald Trump voters.,, their parents, their parents' parents, their parents' parents' parents."

Hard disagree. It’s because the US hasn’t dealt with the inherent racism of its culture and institutions. Not just Trump voters and their parents etc.
