Who’s Got the White Guy Vote?

If you watch the television news, you might have noticed that the pundits are searching for what it is we want to hear. Veep talk? Hillary-Biden switch?  There isn’t a scandal in this race (yet), so the pundits are searching. They are talking a lot about groups of people–blocks of voters, I should say. We are all categories, didn’t you know? Last presidential election, the white guy got slammed right and left, if he got mentioned at all. So maybe this time around, the white guy will get some attention. Stranger things have happened.

I write about it in my new piece of Forbes.com. I would love to hear from you guys in the comments over there.  Forbes hired me and told me I could write on whatever I want, so it’s a real gift. I want to thank you guys for helping me get that gig–your support here has helped me. Thanks, guys!  I won’t stop posting here, by any means. But please visit me over there every week, and spread the word. Subscribe and it will come automatically in your email! And if so moved, share in your social media, I would be most grateful.

    Congratulations, Liza, on the Forbes gig! I’ve just now signed-up to get them. Terrific! My feeble brain truly boggles at how you manage this plethora of activity: you must really, really, REALLY love coffee! (A top-secret blend no doubt.) Am also glad to see you admit to your secret passion to perform onstage — I just knew my recommendation for you to pursue stand-up was based on solid, scientific intuition!

    In regards to your text above, I have no idea what category or “block” I should sign-up for. I do, however, know that YOU are in a category all by yourself. (And I mean that in the most complimentary of ways.) Good luck in your new venture!
