American scum of the earth

This map shows that the areas with the greatest Trump support have the highest rate of white high school dropouts. The typical white reaction to this, I'm sure, is, "Yuck, I don't want to vote for him because stupid people like him."

Of course, when another low IQ population--blacks--love a candidate, then so do many whites. It goes without saying that blacks love Obama, and for reasons that are mystifying, they even love Hillary.  No one ever says, "Yuck, I don't want to vote for Obama because so many stupid people (i.e., blacks) like him."

This suggests that in 2016 the American scum of the earth are humble white folks. They are American untouchables. I recently talked to a white Appalachian who managed to get out of the holler and earn himself a PhD.  (Okay, it was in sociology, so not that big of deal.) He was a Marxist who probably cries himself to sleep every night over the plight of poor black folks while his cousins are addicted to meth.  He told me that he considered his people to be Indian genocidalists. He needs someone to tell him he has been duped by the White Man into thinking that he's no good. That he's trash. That he's a nigger.

Interesting thing about these pattern though, pertaining to the South, is that on the GSS, it holds that the South has the most "Less than high school", if you just filter for Race(1) - White.

However, if you then filter all the ethnic subcategories to exclude Whites of Mexican ethnic origin (frequent in the Southwest) and Whites of American Indian origin (frequent in the deep South), the shift is the Whites in the South then converge with the Midwest and Middle Atlantic.

That's probably another thing these people wouldn't want to hear. The low education Southern Whites they imagine and despise (and probably who often support Trump), and make the South so different from even "flyover country", in actual fact are often likely to be people of mixed American Indian and European cultural background. The actual Southern Whites of only European background are in no way any kind of disadvantaged class (at least when set against the Midwest).

Simplified version of that ethnicity breakdown, just breaking out the Mexican and Amerind groups by recoding the ethnic and race variables into a single variable - and a version just for 2005-2015 -

Wordsum breakdowns for those groups and regions -

Kind of hard to say if the "Amerind Whites" (self rated ethnicity: American Indian, self rated race: White) are actually a real different group ethnically, or just a group of Whites with a wild imagination. Either way, along with Mexicans who identify as White, they seem to be a significant distinguishing factor in the South, while Whites who do not identify either of those ways seem to be pretty typical performers, comparable to the North Central region. There is a bit of a dip in the South East Central region (which contains areas renowned for White poverty) but its generally smaller compared with the comparisons which don't factor out the Amerind / Mexican subset of Whites.

OT: I found this interesting as well - small government correlates with Conservatism for Whites, not for Blacks or Hispanics (barely for Other) - Similar for tax - .

Another point of view is that less intelligent people have interests that need to be represented, too. Since illegal immigration predominantly hurts those toward the bottom of the ladder, they are correct to vote against it (and there is an equity argument for the rest of us to do as well).
