They tell us that men, white men in particular, control the country.
While white males may be dominant in some areas such as academia and comprise the lion's share of Hollywood executives, their will is broken each election day.
Fact: Had only white men voted, the last Democrat president would have been Lyndon Johnson. White men have voted Republican ever since.
White men made up only 36 percent of the 2008 electorate. 41 percent of those voted for Obama, the highest percentage supporting a Democrat since Jimmy Carter.
America's demographic shift moves us farther away from the nation's ideals. It's producing a cultural shift that is not reversible.
