Look at all these descriptors of assumed white voters:
- latte-drinking liberals
- blue collar voters
- lunch bucket voters
- hardworking working-class voters
- soccer moms
- NASCAR dads
- values voters
On Wordcraft, neveu recently used the phrase: " elitist Volvo-driving latte-sipping San Francisco-values not-real-Americans-like-NASCAR-fans-are people." Again, that's not a decriptor of African Americans.
Of course an African American could be a churchgoer or a blue collar voter, but Trice is right, I believe, that they are thought to be white voters. I wonder why the media lumps all the black voters together. Or do they? Are Trice and I too sensitive?
I don't think so, and, as a white, I think that it's insulting.
