Question: I'm inbetween jobs right now

But I expect to be employed shortly as a federal contractor. Is it okay to donate to Hillary at the moment?

I've studiously avoided donating to any campaign because of that.

The problem with "leftism" is

for a movement to liberate the working class, I sure don't see many working class people in it. The socioeconomic base of the American "Far Left" is largely the children of the wealthy white bourgeoisie who are just repeating the ideas of long-dead thinkers without having the social roots to really understand. In retrospect, I don't know how the idea that doing all your organizing work in a demographic space that is among the MOST privileged in American society (aka college campuses full of middle class white kids) wasn't laughed out of the room.

This is the core issue, and until that strategy gets fixed, we're going to see these clashes between POC and the "activist left" for some time to come.
