New York Times columnist and Yale grad David Leonhardt is sick and tired of rural folks in Iowa with "white privilege" oppressing coastal elites like himself by having a say in how the country is run.
In his latest column for the Times, Leonhardt demands that the Iowa caucus "never go first again" as it is "among the country's whitest states."
From The New York Times (Archive), "Iowa Should Never Go First Again: The current system is a form of white privilege that warps the process."
The 2020 cycle should be the last time that Iowa and New Hampshire benefit at the country’s expense.
[...] In truth, the whiteness of Iowa and New Hampshire matters. Consider that Cory Booker and Kamala Harris were doing as well as Amy Klobuchar in early polls of more diverse states; they led Pete Buttigieg in some polls. But Booker and Harris are finished, in no small part because of their struggles in Iowa and New Hampshire. [...]"We're better than the rest of you, and we deserve special treatment forever" sounds like a perfect summation of the core beliefs of everyone who works at the New York Times.
