Perhaps this is the mentality behind what is happening among progressive men. Certainly worth a look.
If Hillary Clinton thinks she is destined to be the president, they’ll find a man to stop her.
The Great Male Hope
In 1910, the writer Jack London revealed white America’s fear of changing racial dynamics. The Heavyweight boxing champion at the time was Jack Johnson, an African American, who kept winning fights with white boxers. Nervous white people in the boxing world, and in the media, felt they needed to stop this black man from infiltrating their club. They convinced a retired white prize-fighter, James Jeffries, to come down off the farm and beat Johnson.
In the run up to the match, billed as the fight of the century, Jack London wrote, “It’s up to you, Jeff, to save the white race.”
Jeffries was known as the Great White Hope who would set things right in a changing America. Many people thought that a white man beating Johnson would symbolize that whites were still on top.
Today in the first quarter of the 21st century we find ourselves in a similar place: another perceived as an outsider – a woman – is knocking on the door of the Oval Office. It’s Hillary Clinton and she not only has all the liberal credentials, she has the most experience of all the candidates running. But there is resistance in the Democratic ranks.
One reason given is vague: “I want a woman president, just not her.”
Sue me if you want, but I am still in shock and awe and Bernie was even allowed into the Democratic tent for a primary. He is not a Democrat. But that's just me.
Please join Hillary in helping the Flint Child Health & Development Fund if you can >>>>
