U.S. Tribal Politics

Regular readers know we've been predicting that if (and now, when) Hillary lost, the Democrats would realize they can no longer nominate a white for president and win. Up to this point I've been a prophet crying in the wilderness. Now see what Instapundit Glenn Reynolds has written on the subject.
What if minority voters just won’t turn out for non-minority candidates any more? That’s a real problem for the Democrats, especially if all the racial politics they pursue in order to try to motivate minority voters (Black Lives Matter, immigration protests, etc.) actually serve to make minorities less likely to vote for whites, even if they’re Democrats. And if working-class whites start to vote Republican the way minorities have voted Democratic — and all that racial politics is likely to encourage that — the Dems are in trouble.
What if Bill Clinton is the last white Democrat president ... ever?
