Liberals should be wary of assuming voters of color have no home in the Republican Party. In fact, on many significant topics – faith, family, law and order – the Republicans may even speak the language of voters of color better than Democrats.
A popular refrain in the Arab American community during the campaign was that at least Trump didn’t start any wars in the Middle East, unlike Obama. Voters I spoke with pointed to this as a reason for not supporting Democratic candidates both during the primaries and general election.
That America’s first authoritarian commander-in-chief appears to be going out as “Richard III” directed by Corky St. Clair is a relief, but it’s also a testament to just how nourished Trump has been by the mere spectacle of success more than the thing itself.
