I think they have been for many years now. Whatever they can use for a vote!

Absolutely! It's a shame that they haven't figured that out yet!

Short answer is yes, I think so Kninjanin.

But I have encountered another idea, also; and that is, the possibility that politicians (and others) use race to divide the middle/working classes against each other, and thus maintain power over us all. 

And one example is the social unrest going on right now -- the efforts to emphasize the racial aspect of the killing of George Floyd. (See Tink's post...the Congressional propaganda show.)

Some of the commentators I consider reliable are now bringing out the possibility that the protests are also a reaction to the increasing oppression of most Americans by a few elite. Here is a recent post by Kim Iversen; she is not only a creative thinker, but in a way she is uniquely American -- her father an Idaho farmer, her mother a Vietnamese refugee (and she often says things that are politically incorrectness). It's a 30-minute video, but she makes her case in the first 8 1/2 minutes, the rest is filling in.

She makes a lot of sense. People are sick of corrupt, mealy-mouthed politicians whose only aim is to stay in office and enrich themselves.

But of course that is why we got Trump in the first place, and why they are so frantic to get rid of him.
