I could go into my soapbox again this Sunday with another reminder of how, historically, one of the One Percent’s most effective tactics in turning working class whites against their own interest is fanning the ‘Other’ tag (which right now obviously includes Mexicans and Muslims), even though from a captalist, every day life standpoint, working class people tend to relate to each other way more than people in this country do when you bring who belong to different economic classes together (regardless of race),


I can direct you to this beautifully subversive sketch from Saturday Night Live last weekend (because I always prefer comedy/art to preaching a point).  I was waiting for it, and yes, I laughed out loud when they finally got to the last joke of the sketch.
