Yes, we know that it is a huge error to talk about the working class as if it were all white people. There’s another huge error: talking about the working class in a story that interviews nearly 10 people and every single one of them is a man, as in this piece on why Ohio voted Trump. That this is story written by a woman with additional reporting by another woman would make it odd except that this assumption is so ingrained into mainstream journalism, just like it is to talk only to white people.
