Re: <nettime> What is the meaning of Trump's victory?


Brian, re this:

The great achievement of the US Democratic Party since 1968, which I
don't mean to deny in any way, is to to have made all those groups
formerly called "minorities" into crucial components of a voting bloc.
That's a starting point. Now let's ditch the financial elites that
currently control the Democratic Party, and replace them with at least
a part of the working class, or the so-called "majority" (which is
another desperate minorty in its own right, like all of us).

---------

Is "the working class" is not composed of "minorities"?
Here are some thoughts the (let's be honest, very white)
'anti-globalisation' and Occupy generations, some of whom are
at present making less than veiled overtures to the alt-Right
over their shared opposition to "the financial elites" and
delaying, constantly, the difficult conversation about the racism
of economic nationalism that is implicit in such formulations.
