1. Which is it?

Over the past year or so, people supposedly on "our side" are criticizing the party for being either too much "in the hands of Wall Street" and/or too much in the thrall of "identity politics" (a veiled way of saying there's too much focus on issues of race, gender, and other social factors). Something's gotta be wrong there.

This myth being promulgated about the Democratic party is that it's all limousine liberals/Wall Street on the one hand and at the same time inconveniently all about minorities and irksome gender issues.

You're right: these baseless stereotypes only serve to prop up Republicans and third parties. It's not constructive. But then Glaude is part of the West/Smiley entitled elite, who probably have more invested in Wall Street and limousines than the average Democrat.
