Rain threatening so I put off my walk.
The idea of white people defining what it is to be american is long gone. The reality is that changing demographics is to a more multicultural identity and that makes many afraid.
There is white nationalism and it is almost completely what makes up the Trump core support. This is mainly white men, older white women and an insular cadre of bigots in guise of neo Nazis and so called proud boys. They represent what was at the birth of america and what as recent as a hundred years saw native Americans as vermin and blacks as chattel. They latch on to Trump and he accommodate them because he lack the capacity or it is not in his nature to accept a changing america.
