It seems like Democrats will not be approved by the public unless they are aware of their whiteness and privilege. For instance, Beto O’Rouke of Texas has declared that he , “clearly had advantages” being a white man. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts stated that her life as a single mom was not as hard as it would be for a black woman, while South Bend Indiana’s Pete Buttigieg stated that, “Any white candidate needs to show a level of consciousness around issues like white privilege.”
Democratic strategist Joel Payne calls this a, “woke litmus test”, and a requirement for any Democratic presidential nomination who wants to win.
But by doing this are they alienating the suburban white working class?
