I agree. And the comment about blue states vs red states, I would argue that blue states for the most part have higher education, higher income, therefore higher life expectancy.

why dont red states aim for higher education and higher incomes for their residents?

Possibly because the cost of living is generally so low, and theres so many blue collar jobs to be had.

literacy means educated which means they'll start questioning the bullshit. Keep them impoverished and uneducated= easily led around to petty bullshit (gas stoves)

Because their politicians keep them too focused on race to think about class.

Whether or not it's intentional keeping the 95% of the population with overlapping interests divided by race & gender is certianly useful.

Republicans don’t talk about race , Democrats are the ones that are obsessed with telling us we are different than others because of our skin.

I'm sorry, remind me again how Trump described the people of Mexico while advocating for a border wall

Edit: also still false because the republicans still talk about race all the time
