"In virtually every instance, the idea that the Republican Party is 'too white' is dropped with almost no discussion of what exactly that means. The phrase is being pinned like a scarlet 'W' on anyone who didn't vote for the Democrats' nominee. It's a you-know-what-we-mean denunciation. Its only meaning is racial…. The Democrats' insistence on pandering to political categories is a dead end for the country. Rather than spinning their own Rubik's Cube of race, gender and ethnicity, Republicans should start growing their share of the electorate by doing a better job of telling people how to succeed in the American melting pot, a wonderful organizing idea now mocked as a 'myth' by progressive Democrats. No one can beat the Democrats at the politics of social division."
