It almost goes without saying that this how White voters are perceived and casually discussed in the mainstream media these days due to Wokeism.
“There is a flip side to the White grievance of the right — and it’s one of the most important but under-discussed aspects of American politics.
In the decades since the passage of the Civil Rights and Voting Rights acts in the 1960s, the Republican Party has embraced a strategy of White grievance, perennially pushing policies and rhetoric that imply that the United States has gone too far in supporting civil rights causes and people of color. The 2021 version of this strategy is Republicans attacking how public schools teach about race and racism, with conservatives often falsely suggesting that White students are being told that they should be ashamed of their race.
The Democratic Party, to its credit, has remained committed to civil rights. It wants to be aligned with people of color. But Democrats also want to win elections in a White-majority country. So, party leaders for decades have informally adopted a strategy of White appeasement — by which I mean they have frequently taken actions, often subtle, to demonstrate to White Americans that they aren’t too tied to civil rights causes and people of color. …
But the questions of if, when and how Democrats pursue White appeasement politics have always been contested within the party. And right now, that debate is perhaps more relevant than ever before. …
And that’s a real problem. White appeasement leads to policies that hurt people of color. It incentivizes public humiliations of prominent people of color. It results in civil rights causes and candidates of color being sidelined. And it’s of limited and diminishing electoral value. The party needs to stop and think hard — every single time — before it turns to this deeply troubling, increasingly outmoded reflex.
Democratic White appeasement should be narrow, careful and, most importantly, rare.”
I could make a super obvious point here.
Can you imagine a conservative publication talking about how do we appease the blacks or the Hispanics and arguing against doing so because it would be harmful to Whites? It has become normal in the media to talk about White people with utter contempt and disdain. This is how far the pendulum has swung toward “antiracism.” Democrats talk about White voters like they are a degraded caste.
In contrast, when conservatives talk about winning more of the non-White vote, which is every election cycle, they are almost always earnest and eager to do so. They are desperate to prove that “Dems R Real Racists.” They are currently hugely proud of the fact that Winsome Sears won the lieutenant governor race in Virginia. It is impossible to imagine the Democrats trying to win White rural voters.
