There are 3 comments on If Identity Politics Elected Trump in 2016, What Will Happen in 2020?

  1. There’s not once at a Trump rally that he didn’t mention his appreciation of legally immigrated Asian Americans, European Americans, African Americans.. you name it. The best is yet to come!

  2. Democrats OWN Identity politics, period! Without it they’d have no platform and no base. If you disagree that’s great, but please show me one democrat candidate in history that hasn’t run on identity politics. Promise progressive change and NEVER deliver! So Disappointing!

  3. On a side note, I suggest that his class discuss the origin of “Caucasian ” and how it’s use has mutated- a topic dear to heart to Prof. Paul Takagi of UC Berkeley.
