The photo on the Aug. 8 front page of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch showed four happy pro-union Democrats, who were celebrating the defeat of Missouri’s “right to work” referendum, Proposition A.
I couldn’t help but notice that all the celebrants were Caucasian, male and middle-aged. Yet, no mention was made of their white race or male gender or seasoned age. I wonder why not?
If these individuals had been presented as President Donald Trump supporters, I’m sure that the Post-Dispatch would have dwelled on the old liberal chestnut that Trump supporters are all old, racist white men. Deplorables — yawn.
By the way, I supported the defeat of Proposition A.
