Anonymous - Are there any benefits to identity politics?
Muhammad Rasheed - Of course. The entire political structure of the United States government is designed for special interests to come together as political blocs along whatever identity they unify under to pressure elected officials to meet their demands. The system can be cheated to provide unfair advantages if the special interest group is collectively wealthy and can employ professional lobbyists armed with stacks of cash to grease the palms of unscrupulous politicians in the notoriously corrupt Washington D.C. “swamp.”
Even without the money, legions of committed voters within a special interest group are quite capable of pressuring representatives into giving way to their demands, which is why the dominant special interest group — under its own identity political bloc of “whiteness” — is so adamant in its effort to convince its non-white political rivals to abandon the tools that will enable them to compete on the playing field that the so-called white people hoard for themselves.
MEDIUM: Scanned pen & ink cartoon drawing w/Adobe Photoshop color.
