White anxiety about America's demographic shift and the increasing political power of minority voters has never been expressed so earnestly as this in-depth interview with Bill McGaughey, a Democrat running for president with a single-state strategy focused on New Hampshire.
McGaughey's chief complaint is media portrayals of whites as villains in filmed entertainment and as a people facing inevitable decline in TV news. A few weeks shy of his 75th birthday, McGaughey says that race was never an issue when he was growing up, and that it pains him to see it focused upon so heavily today.
His flamboyant sombrero, he explains, is an attention getter, not intended to be a slight against Mexican Americans or immigrants to this country. To the degree that his slogan, "White Man's Walk," is provocative, he offers that it is a risk he is willing to take in order to promote dialogue, which he sees as the only solution to the problem.
While he did acknowledge that prejudice "goes both ways," he feels that open advocates for the interests of white people are completely lacking in the 2016 campaign. If there is nothing wrong with #BlackLivesMatter, why shouldn't there be a #WhiteMansWalk? He appears to be sad and even wounded at the thought that a white person should be ashamed of his or her race, or for engaging in political action on behalf of white America.
McGaughey, who is married to an African American woman, lives in Minneapolis, MN. He previously ran for president in 2004, focusing on the Louisiana primary. TYT reporter Jordan Chariton noticed him standing alone outside the Feb. 4, 2016 debate at the University of New Hampshire. His website is:
