My first temptation is to laugh at you. You don’t know that identity politics is just another name for civil rights. But I don’t want to laugh at you, because you appear to be a conservative who cares about civil rights. I care about civil rights and I will work with anyone who forwards them. If you have a way to make heartless, uncaring conservatives care about civil rights. If you have found a way to trick them into caring about civil rights by just dropping the identity politics label, I will keep your secret and pretend that it is anything but.

How are you going to get these lily white bastards to care about anything but white supremacy? How are you going to get the people who are supporting Roy Moore to vote for people who aren’t crazy Christian dominionists who want us all to living in the Christian Iran? How are you going to get the people who are being bombarded by messages from Russia about white resentment to stop caring about their little group and notice the statistics show their group is actually much better off?
