White working class

Working class white people are the large group of working people in the United States of European ancestry.[1] They function as swing voters due to distinctly American peculiarities of the American political system which due to a long history of racism in the United States has historically granted them white privilege in terms of opportunity and social status.[2] Thus they may be gulled into voting against the objective interests of the proletariat by conservative or libertarian political movements which advance rhetoric which promises "freedom," individual rights, and "jobs" while advancing the interest of corporations in avoiding regulation or the need to adequately compensate labor or provide decent working conditions.
