...And the Democrats solution is to marginalize white men to make things even, and that's where Trump is getting the bulk of his base.

Sorry, but I find this statement to be a load of hooie...
White men first of all comprise the majority in this nation.
No matter how much they feel sorry for themselves, they are NOT
set upon. And being a white man myself, having lived amongst white
men all my life, I have witnessed time and time again how white men have
reinforced their own notions of being 'set upon' (basically any time they
don't get their way, or any time that a minority or a woman is voted into
power or challenges them). I have also witnessed, time and time again, how
EASILY the white man is swayed, distracted, caves into litany's of hate, to
the mythology of being superior, to deserving more, to deserving the most in
society, to the belief in 'toxic masculinity' with all of its self-serving bullying
of others. No, no. The typical white male in this country is never happy unless they
are at the very top of the food chain. Only then is he satisfied. According to his
adopted mythology, it is his 'by right', forget fair competition, forget the fact
he might not know as much anymore as his competitors. Sick of it. I've watched
this for decades now. Nobody is guaranteed a 'free lunch' in America. It is a
'skill set economy'. And regardless of race, sex, whatever, if you lack the skills
that society deems worthy and worth paying for in this country--you WILL fall behind!
So stop whining. Stop feeling sorry for yourselves, go back to school, go back and get
retrained, and get the skillsets you need to succeed! And to say the Dems have alienated you?!!
Really?! The same democratic party that has for years tried to defend unions and the right of
the working man to organize and protect what little rights they had?! You don't know ----- about
what you are talking about. You want to be mad, because technology and society has passed your
blue collar job right on by? Fine, I understand that! But instead of blaming those who are
really causing you grief (the white CEO that shipped your job out to China, or Mexico, or some
cheaper worker market) you follow the easy path of blaming women and minorities, and other workers
(like yourself in skills, but different from you in ethnicity) because you WANT to believe in your
own superiority. But to blame the democrats, those who have fought for worker rights, whilst the GOP
has fought 'tooth and nail' against worker rights, is foolish. To blame minorities, who are just trying
to make a living like you are, is foolish. Focus your anger in the right areas, in the right direction,
and work at bettering yourself and your own skillset, THAT is the only way to change the paradigm, and
the situation that has made you unhappy. I've said my piece. Do with it, what you will...
