"From a post titled White Men Are Not Very Progressive:
... progressive politics is badly disadvantaged by a situation in which the overwhelming majorities of political leaders and prominent media figures are white men. There are plenty of white men with progressive views, but in general the majority of white men are not progressive and the majority of progressives are not white men. Drawing from the relatively small pool of white male progressives means drawing from a shallow talent pool.The problem is not too few white male progressives, but the progressive message. Regardless of the color of skin of the voter, the progressive message is stale and never resonated with the American public."
