When portions of white America went total idiot and nevertheless expected to have control despite regressing back to the 19th century. And it's not really a war - you've just become irrelevant to the actual success of society. If you want to be relevant again, learn how. Whining about how the playing field is more level is a loser's move. If the only way you can succeed is if others are forced below you, you're not a winner. If you insist on having a job in a coal mine despite the obvious economic, health and environmental reasons why that's a bad thing, enjoy being unemployed. If you think you can get by barely doing anything in high school and expect a high paying job at a factory, but also want to buy cheap crap from China at Walmart, realize that those goals are contradictory and pick one. If you consistently vote for Republicans and whine about how the poor can't get ahead and the rich have all the money, you literally asked for that to happen, so stop. Grow up and learn how the world works, and you might get ahead.
