Democrats will soon be voting on who should be their nominee for the presidency, and much to my shock, not only is the front-runner white, but the top four contenders are all white: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren.
From 2016 on, many writers both inside and outside white advocacy circles began saying that Hillary Clinton would almost certainly be the last white Democratic nominee. Some examples:
- Will the Democrats Ever Nominate Another White Candidate for President?, Sacco Vandal, American Renaissance, December 27, 2016.
- The Democrats’ White-Guy Problem, Josh Kraushaar, National Journal, February 28, 2017.
- The Last White Democrat President, Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Mag, August 7, 2017.
- Democrats Have Made One Thing Very Clear About 2020: They’re over White Men, Jamelle Bouie, Slate, November 15, 2018
- The Path to the Presidency Could Be Harder for White Democrats in 2020, Jamelle Bouie, Slate, December 26, 2018.
The one Hispanic candidate, Julián Castro, won’t even be in the next Democratic debate.
It seemed certain that the party of the fringes, the party of “the Squad,” the party of immigration, etc. would run a non-white candidate, but now, it seems certain that a white man or woman will carry the banner.
Why were all our predictions wrong?
