Well, the "uneducated white" people voted for Trump. I've been reading and hearing this in the media and in conversation with Hillary supporters all over the place. I thought to myself, wait a minute, they mean the "Stupid White" person vote. This is something they must point out. How insulting? There were no uneducated blacks or Hispanics that voted for Hillary or Obama? It just feels offensive and demeaning. You can do the same thing in the states Hillary won for Hispanic and Black uneducated voters. Simply because there are probably large amounts of uneducated people that vote, which means nothing.

Yes, there are extremely stupid people in this country that vote for either candidate. However, it does not mean only uneducated or stupid people vote for that candidate. Which is what they are implying. Simply being "educated" does not make one smarter than someone else, although that is what is assumed. There are plenty of intelligent people that have not went to college and plenty of stupid people that have graduated from college. I would also offer an argument that for some universities, it's more of an liberal/left-wing indoctrination, than an education.

For the record I have a college degree and have several IT related certifications. Being uneducated just means you don't have a college degree. It means you have an advantage in a job market that would require a college degree or further. Sure, being educated does make you "smarter" in what you learned in college over others that haven't, but I view commons sense just as valuable as intelligence. Also, it should be noted "uneducated" people happen to be the blue collar workers, those who went to trade school, independent business owners, entrepreneurs, etc... and they should not be marginalized by any means.

This is the narrative that's being pushed against the Trump voter right now. This and the racist white person narrative I've been hearing as well. Where are they going with this?

You're only allowed to talk about this if your speech is at least 72.597% loaded with self-chastising White Guilt diatribe. That will be 10 self-flagellation lashings, and 12 hail Hydra's for you buddy boy.

The reason you don't hear about the uneducated minority votes as their own designation.. because the minority votes predominantly go towardsee a single candidate statistically whether they are educated or not.

Caucasian males however... with a college education.. vote completely different from Caucasian males without a college education.

Those with college, voted Hillary

Those without voted Trump

It's not that hard to understand.

It sounds like you're confusing those specific ivy league universities with all the colleges etc out there.

Uh-oh. Not my intention, but a mere observation.

I obviously understand that part but you are missing the point of the post (if you read it?).

You have to understand that in this discussion, "education" is a stand-in for social class.

This has been (and is an ongoing) class war in America in 2016.

Basically, Hillary's supporters tended to be wealthier, and thus college graduates. Trump definitely got the White Uneducated Female vote---because he got the bulk of the working class.

Hell, in the middle-age brackets, he got 1/3 of blacks and hispanics as well.

The DEMS tried to act like this was about race and education.

It was class warfare, pure and simple.

As cheesy as it may sound, people want to dream again and believe that the people in power actually intend to at least attempt to make those dreams happen and the establishment has shattered that illusion over the last ten years... so if Trump doesn't work out, if Brexit doesn't go the way we like, we'll vote again, and again, further and further out from the establishment, further into the realm of ideas and ideologies until we find one that works. Revel in your ability to do so. It's called democracy.

Anyone who has been paying attention for the last year would know how bad of a propaganda campaign it is to divide people based on their skin color. And it's quite sad that so many thousands of people still fall for this.

Unfortunately for them, the data statistics show the truth (not that you'll see this reported in the liberal MSM who are scrambling to save face and cover up their collusion with the DNC). Trump didn't actually win due to white racist voter turn out, Clinton lost due to low voter turn out. The data shows that Bernie would have likely beaten Trump without contest. Or perhaps Hillary would have won had she also won the nomination honestly.

Also interesting how some counties that voted Obama twice in a row turned Trump. Wonder how racist they must be to have supported Obama twice?

People pretending to be angry at Trump and/or white racists (or whoever CNN tells them to be mad at) need to turn around and look at their party leaders who threw this election by rigging the nomination for Hillary and stealing it from Bernie. They told their supporters that their vote doesn't matter, and they lost because of it.

The same political and social atmosphere that allowed someone as corrupt and scandalous as Hillary Clinton to rig the nomination is the same atmosphere that allowed Donald Trump to become the president elect.

So, that's where they are going here. Interesting. Straight out of the Aulinsky playbook, huh.
