Young, white males are still angry about not being heard....given opportunities...

What drives me nuts is they are still giving Trump a pass, 3.5 years into his term.
Am I reading this wrong?

1. Reading what? Did you read something that made this thought come to mind?

2. No

Many men, not young but older harbor grievances that have built for years. I hear it all the time.

Democrats do not care about them, they only care about Special Interests!

Even when you remind them they will benefit from Democratic programs they are concerned about now. How the ACA causes them to pay such high Insurance. Where are the good paying jobs? Clinton signed NAFTA, which he did, causing jobs to leave.

Until these problems are fixed they are not going to change

5. They do not care about getting these things for themselves

As much as they wish to keep poc, immigrants and even single mothers from getting them. This is a problem that is arising from them. Once again society must change the rules to give them an even greater advantage. They think any competition is unfair and imagine that any law meant to protect minorities is an attack on them. They are not self aware enough to see that these laws emerge from their own bigotry and hate.
I am a 5o year old white guy.. I have worked with and successfully competed with people of all stripes, I have three hernia scars, a back surgery scar and two fucked up knees to show for it. But I would not trade those scars for an unfair advantage over the hard working poc that I respect for their work ethic and tenacity. (Not to mention that their food is generally better than American "cuisine "
I have spent my whole working life in Ky and it is mostly fat , entitled, lazy white guys (30 to 50 yrs old) who piss and moan about how great the minorities have it, even as they work along side them.
I am not sure I want to be associated politically with them anyway. It is bad enough that I am the same color and the assholes thinkI am like them.

3. They wouldn't change anyway. Anger is an addiction as well as one of the 7 deadly sins.

The only way they change is when they become sick and vulnerable llike all the people they resent.

4. Oh god, they are so pathetic!

Why can't they see that they are their own problem? I see it every day. Young, lazy white males who think they should have everything handed to them on a platter without any effort.

I even see it with middle aged white males. In my workplace all the time. They are they laziest workers and wonder why they aren't getting promoted. They barely show up and when they do they spend half the day goofing off and chit-chatting and wondering why women and minorities are getting promoted over them. They just seem to feel entitled and don't think they have to work hard to get anywhere.

It's no wonder that they vote for Trump. Talk about someone who is a complete loser who has had every advantage handed to him and is still a complete failure. These men relate to an entitled failure who still believes he should be worshiped simply because he is a white male.

10. The ones I hear

Are not lazy slobs. They were very hard working, loyal employees who watched their jobs go overseas. Some were Professionals of many years who actually had to go over and train foreign workers for their jobs.

You guys are falling into the same trap you criticize others for. Of course there are many like you describe but the many I know voted for Trump.or, have no use for either party.

I think Joe Biden can win them both. He is a part of each. Working class Father who knew the pain of not having the money to send their kids to College and a long time Politician who really cares about them.

11. You're confusing me.

I thought it was the old white males we were supposed to blame.

So, it's really the young ones?

Somebody really needs to make a spreadsheet or something.

12. No, you're not. It's the spawn of the Stupid.

It's the second generation to be poisoned by Fox News. Think about it, 30 years of Fux noise on in their parents house all day, every day.
It's terrifying when you think about it and it's not going away anytime soon.

13. the bottom line...

.... and the simplest answer is one that unfortunately, has little remedy. It's called willful ignorance. When presented facts based upon logic you can expect one of two reactions. The first would be anger. The second would be the blank stare, which tells you that particular brain is already filled to the brim with bullshit.

14. Not being heard by old white males, so they blame non-white males. Makes perfect sense.
