2. Poor whites and race

Poor whites were given a promise that as long as they remained white, they would be elevated above people of color, immigrants, even Irish people, and so poor whites developed a culture that acted as a bulwark against the non-white population.

Dismantling white supremacist culture in the US will be painful to those poor whites who cling to racism, white supremacist beliefs, etc., and there's no anodyne for that pain. I don't think the party should work extra-hard to "appeal" to racist white people, but I believe that working toward raising wages, building a strong business climate, etc., will help white people as much as anyone.
