To listen to punditry from left and right over the last year and change, you’d think the Democratic party is in a death spiral with almost no chance of pulling level. The far left uses this talking point as proof the party needs to toss away half a century of work by the primary vertebrae in its backbone — women of color — by putting aside identity politics in favor of trying to draw in the white working class.

It seems dubious to erase women of color in the far left by trying to paint the far left as being against women of color with a one-dimensional straw man caricature of the far left’s positions in a piece that goes on at length to describe why the overt misogyny of Trump is among the harbingers of the GOP’s demise.

Just the facts: Writer. Gamer. Feminist. Educated in Astrophysics. Professional Gambler. Student of Language. Satanist. Anarchist. He/Him.
