There has always been a large number of American whites who feel guilty about their success and sympathize with the downtrodden. Nixon, Ford, McPain, etc, tried to court them unsuccessfully.
So, at this point I'm openly saying "screw them"...I hate the poor. I have had enough of their sh!t and I am no longer willing to subsidize them any longer, and am not going to be browbeaten into being nice, or just shutting up. End food stamps, welfare, WIC and on and on. Since 70% of welfare is paid to rural whites I can comfortably defend my position and prove that such a suggestion is in fact not racist.
