I want to suggest: White parents and grandparents need to have a talk about racialized policing with their children and grandchildren. Tell them that black people, including black children -- their classmates, teammates, and playmates -- can be stopped by the police, hurt by the police, and even killed by the police just because they are black.
Once upon a time, the white working class was the colossus of U.S. politics. White working class voters were the largest bloc in the electorate. They provided the foundation for the New Deal, the most durable political coalition in U.S. history Today, the white working class vote faces multiple challenges to exerting influence, as their numbers and clout have declined.
