Yep, its hard to argue with that but history will repeat itself as income inequality continues to widen, it was white and black people who held FDR with reverence when he implemented policies to spread the wealth. The rich hated FDR when he started SSI, Glass Steagall Act and other stuff and then he proposed the 2nd Bill of Rights:Race will NEVER become "less of a factor" to white voters and policy makers. It is not by accident that wherever you go in the world, whites are on top and the sons and daughters of Africa are on the bottom.
