20. I think he/she means poor white people have the need to feel "better" than someone

since they are not doing well economically, and since race is being used for that purpose, they can even feel "better" than the President. You know, the guy with the Columbia BA... the magna cum laude graduate of Harvard Law school, who served as president of the Law Review... the guy twice elected president of the country. (If only THEY had the HUGE advantage of affirmative action, THEY could be president, too.... though there is never any concern about how W got into Harvard Business School as a self-described "C student."
