Pete Buttigieg's incredible "whiteness" (if not "white privilege")

Good to read a really nice bio in The New Yorker on Pete Buttigieg...

His use of religion is really annoying-- except that it makes clear that the Left (or at least Dems) are quite happy to use religion as a convenient and practical means to their ends. Otherwise, he comes across as quite reasonable-- and relatively impressive compared to their other top tier candidates.

Here's the kicker-- and it became clearer to me after this article. He seems like, quite ironically, the top candidate of "white privilege" or at least "whiteness". Trump's numbers with African-Americans will continue to grow, if the economy stays strong. But they'll pick up extra pace if the Dems choose Buttigieg (or Warren or Sanders).
