It would be ironic in other circumstances, but to see thousands of white Trump supporters in Duluth, MN at a Trump rally last night wildly cheering Trump’s most inflammatory rhetoric against immigrants from Central America is sobering, to say the least. It was as good as a visual representation as I have seen lately of the degree to which racism, nativism, and nationalism have lodged themselves in the intellectual and emotional make up of a significant group of white people, including white workers. Duluth, if you don’t know, is about as far away from the Mexican border as you can get. Moreover, it is hardly a destination point for most immigrants. In fact, It’s only a reach, albeit a long one, across Lake Superior to Canada.
