If you watched any of the Republican National Convention, you had to notice the sea of white faces that stared back at you from the hall. It was very difficult to spot a delegate of color.
You couldn’t help but notice, too, that most of those white people appeared to be rather well-heeled, let’s say. Well paid; well off; living the Republican dream.
It shouldn’t be necessary to remind people that the GOP is today what it’s always been: the party of the rich and the privileged, and also a party that remains nearly all white.
