The future is not so bright for revanchist white people

I think is is pretty well known that, on average, white Americans are older than Americans.  But, wow, does this from Pew really put it in perspective, “The most common age among whites in U.S. is 58 – more than double that of racial and ethnic minorities.”

In U.S., most common age for whites is much older than for minorities

I think we all know what this means for the future of American politics.  And why white Republicans are fighting so damn hard against it.  Just doubling-down on white racial anxiety/animus and trying to rig electoral rules may yet still be successful for the short term.  But, longer term… not so much.
