1. How strange to hear that Yang of all people is being smeared

 

as having ties to white racists. I'm glad you posted this because I was wondering what was happening with him. He's a good, sensible man, as expected of an Obama appointee. He's a techie intensely aware of the loss of tens of millions of jobs to tech and the need for incomes by all of us, who will always be entitled to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

The Hill on claims that Yang is white nationalist:
The entrepreneur made similar comments about the vulnerability of poor white communities in his book, “The War on Normal People.”

“In the context of my book, I was saying, how will this tribalism and violence manifest itself. Poor whites who felt like they had no future and then that violence would emerge in large part because that group would become increasingly angry and distressed,” Yang said. “That’s the context of the book.”

Yang, the son of Taiwanese immigrants, quipped that “I don't look much like a white nationalist. It’s been a point of confusion” and added, “I don't want the support of anyone who has any kind of agenda that's different than the agenda of this campaign. And our slogan is humanity first.”
