17. We all agree, I think, that bigotry played a major role.

 

But isn't arguing that economics played no major role basically an argument for Democrats to be conservative on economics and defer to Wall Street?

You seem to see this a choice of whether the party opposes bigotry OR opposes economic injustice, and you appear-if I am reading your continued arguments on this correctly-to believe that acknowledging economic dispossession as playing any part in the Trump phenomenon HAS to mean putting the fight against bigotry on the back burner.

That isn't the argument economic justice advocates are making.

What we're saying is deal with BOTH...deal with bigotry and address corporate dominance and the consequences of the last thirty-six years of economic abandonment of the working class-and not just the white working-class, but the ENTIRE working class.

What would you need to hear before you could trust that dealing with economic justice DOESN'T mean throwing women and people of color(groups that are disproportionate victims of thirty-six years of economic injustice)under the bus?

Is there ever a time in which you could be open to dialog on this, rather than getting into an automatic "Not so fast, buddy!" response?
