Question:  Who is the biggest loser in the 2020 election?

The election is now over – except it’s not over. Americans voted in record numbers, and yet many races are razor thin and still undecided. But some things are already pretty clear.

As we sift through the mountain range of statistics generated by this uniquely 2020 election, the biggest loser appears to be “identity politics,” driven by Marxist generated “Critical Race Theory” and its vile traveling companion “Intersectionality.”

Ever since the mid-1970’s the academic left has been attempting to divide Americans from one another by emphasizing the color of their respective skins, rather than by their character. In doing so they have been chasing a totally contradictory dream than the one envisioned by the prophetic Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s of a society where all Americans could sit together at the table of Christian brotherhood.

Instead, Identity Politics emphasizes differences and grievances over common beliefs and allegiances to the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, which this country and its citizens continue to seek to bring evermore fully into reality.

Let’s start with California and then work our way Eastward across the continent (after all we are told America’s future begins in California). In the formally Golden State, voters soundly defeated a well-financed and concerted attempt to rescind Proposition-209, the ballot measure passed by California’s voters in 1996 that outlawed the use of race, national origin, and sex by the state’s universities and other institutions.

Proposition-209 was a citizens’ revolt against court-mandated “affirmative action” described negatively by its detractors as “reverse discrimination.” This was a terribly divisive issue in the 1980s and 1990s, which many people believe exacerbated racism, rather than ameliorating it. Incidentally, perhaps the most vigorous opponents of rescinding Proposition-209, since they were perhaps the most egregiously victimized by “affirmative action,” were Asian Americans.

It should also be clear from the election results of this year that the broad sociological term “Hispanic” is woefully inadequate to describe the multitude of ethnic and national origins that are collected under that sociological umbrella.  Hispanic is used to describe Puerto Ricans, Mexican-Americans (including first to fifth or sixth generation born in this country) Venezuelans, Hondurans, Guatemalans, etc.  Hispanics are a rich and diverse cultural and ethnic tapestry that defies easy categorization.
