29. I think

I think that AAs POCs are already in the left. It is the working class whites who have to join the left. The whites on the left - those in the echo chambers - don't really recognize that non whites are the true leaders of the left.
You have to get beyond white privilege and recognize the real drivers of the process. They are non whites, gays etc.

The white working class is hard to reach; and, many of them vote GOP.

That is a source of the failure of Sanders; he is from the 1968 era of the New left ; he appealed to white working and lower middle class younger people. I think that he was just being blind to reality.

the left ( socialists, etc) has always had a problem with pragmatic reformers such as PBO and Clinton. They have a doctrinal problem; and, a practical problem. if liberal reforms work and people are satisfied, the left will have its' ground cut out from under them.

Socialsim, by emphasizing class conflict, gives other conflicts short shrift.
