Divide and conquer

Political economic structures depend on an underclass of the disempowered — and on underclasses within the underclass. This hierarchy within the underclass preserves the overall hierarchy, as the various underclass groups compete with each other for the scraps of power they are thrown from above, rather than unite and rise up against the tiny elite. Hence disempowered white people vote for Trump.
