The pro-Hillary talking point today is that

we have an all-male white bubble here at DU. I think that is bullshit.

Someone with some cred on this site needs to put up a demographic poll for Bernie supporters to respond to - needs to offer choices something like this:

male, over 50, white
male, over 50, nonwhite

female, under 50, white
female, under 50, nonwhite

You get the idea. It should probably be in this forum so folks don't screw around with it. We can take the results out to GD : P to show them they are full of it. I think Bernie's team is varied on ages, gender, race, etc.

1. Your cred is as good as anyone elses here

There's no one here any more special than you and you are no more special than anyone else.

I say- go for it.

3. Oh ffs, of course

That they try to shape public perceptions based on things easily disproven is so typical, it's predictable at this point.

5. Last time I looked, I wasn't white

 

I am Heinz 57 varieties. My genes are so mixed up race wise, I just call myself a member of the Human Race.

7. DU has run demograpic polls in the past.

If memory serves, DUers tend to be well-educated and skew older. It's not painfully white nor overwhelmingly male. We might even have more women than men.

8. That's what I recall as well -

I did one on income years ago and it was very split. Some of that may have been professionals vs. retirees/students etc. I do know it is not all under 30 white males!

9. Definitely not all millenials. I was surprised how many old farts there are around here.

Between students, retirees, folks on disability, and the unemployed, I'd say the average DUer income is fairly modest. There are some outliers, of course, but the 1% is represented more by decibels than volume.
