Well, to be more precise, he was lacking southern white power. He had northern white power.
I should say white privilege than white power though smile emoticon
I’m from the north – from New Jersey. I live in the south now, which makes me some kind of bi.
Anyway, I carried my northexuality down with me and so, when Obama became president, I hardly noticed. He had all the white privilege without being white. I barely noticed him in 8 years because to me, he was just like any other white president. In short, he had northern white privilege.
But the south saw it differently. Him being president was a VERY big deal to people here.
Heck, the local ELEMENTARY school has a small white power segment. My … was into it for a while. The KKK meets a block away from here – one of their dragons.
Still, I hardly notice them. It’s a mixed community and people leave each other alone. But still, there’s a definite difference between north and south.
I think his point is changing the attitudes of people. If the attitudes of young people today change, when they get into positions of political power, then they can enact those changes.
He’s looking for Legacy, not Presidency. And, he’s succeeding.
We’ve had rich people try to buy their way into the Presidency. Trump has been the most wildly successful of that.
I don’t think we’ve ever had an agnostic jewish man from NY with messy hair, an old-school NY Jewish accent get THIS FAR.
Of course Clinton running was no surprise: she’s been transparent about her goal for years.
All in all, three very strange choices. It’s been a most interesting election cycle so far.
Of course it doesn’t. That’s his point. It _could_.
That being said, I find Trump and Sanders’ protectionist stance to be too extreme and unrealistic. Clinton’s the most politician like of the bunch. Has the best shot in the end.
