White Solidarity

Ryan Powers observes that conservative talk radio host Michael Savage thinks that “the only people who don’t seem to vote based on race are whites of European origin.”

This is a pretty bizarre point of view. It’s quite common to see African-Americans voting in droves for a white politician. By contrast, you almost never see a black politician win a majority of the white vote. And for a long time southern whites oriented their partisan affiliations entirely around their goal maintaining a white monopoly on political power.
