Do #WhiteTrashLivesMatter to Donorist-Capitalist-Neocon Party Bad Boy Kevin Williamson? by John Derbyshire. Establishment writer Kevin Williamson infamously dissed underclass whites, blaming their poor economic and social status on the victims:
The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets … The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.
(We noted some of this previously on the Wentowrth Report.) Derbyshire pointed out that Williamson would never write so scathingly about poor blacks, and:
It is further true that, as dysfunctional as the white underclass may be, they are nothing like as antisocial, certainly nothing like as homicidal, as the black underclass. Nor are they anything like as big a proportion of the white population as underclass blacks are of the black population.
