Thousands of Shia Muslims took to the streets of Dearborn, reportedly in Rashida Tlaib’s district, and marched.
...
Because of the racial breakdowns, that district is so reliably Democratic that Republicans don’t even bother running for its empty seat in Congress.

All of the US could be like this. We are here to make it so.

Another reminder that Demographic Blueshift is not just about improving the quality of the voting population, but also about providing access to better candidates:

When people ask me, "Why did you become an immigration attorney?" it's because of that, the fact that I was born into this very cross-cultural environment, this unique area of the country right on the border. My elementary school was right next to the river, and in the mornings, we could see families crossing into the United States. I remember saying I could not spot a difference between a mom and her child, and me and my mom. I know that my citizenship is a privilege. To many folks who are on the border, we know our lives could've been very different had we been born five minutes south of where we were.

As you can imagine, being an immigration attorney under Trump was a very difficult and heartbreaking experience. You go in there and the odds are already stacked against you, but under the Trump administration, it just felt like it was almost impossible to win cases and keep families together. It got to the point where I was trying to console one too many families. I thought, if they keep telling me that the law is a problem, then I'm going to go to Congress and change it.

Now I'm still making my case, but instead of being in a courtroom in front of a judge, I'm in a district and the voters are the judges.

I was nominated to run for office by my high school teacher; I think he saw Justice Democrats recruiting and thought of me. I got a call from Justice Democrats, and they asked about my roots to my community and what I believed we should be doing here in South Texas.

I am a bit confused. You say that ethnicity does not matter, but why do demographic trends seem to show predominantly “non white” ethnicities voting left wing.

---

Because they are the victims of "white" racism, therefore they are more likely to vote for the party they perceive as more sincerely interested in defending them. This is the result not of ethnicity mattering, but of racists behaving as if ethnicity mattered.

Here is Stacey Abrams explaining the same point:

If ethnicity itself did matter (in the biological sense), then we should expect a "non-white" ethnicity more closely ancestrally related to "whites" voting more like "whites" than like a more ancestrally distant "non-white" ethnicity. For example, we should expect Americans of Palestinian ancestry (who are far more closely ancestrally related to Anglos than to Bantus):

voting more like "whites" than like "blacks". But in reality, they vote more like "blacks", because they have a more similar historical experience as victims of Western colonialism.

Ah now I see. I recall a post on the main blog where a rightist’s claim that all “non whites” behave tribally was refuted with an example of Mexicans and Arabs, both groups with ”non white” ancestry, opposing the Iraq War.

---

Yes. Which is not to say that rightists of one "non-white" ethnicity do not display bigotry towards another "non-white" ethnicities. But when they do, it is emphatically not because of tribalism, but because of Eurocentrism (ie. thinking that by doing so they can make themselves appear "whiter"). And they also display bigotry towards their own ethnicity for the same reason. This is what we are here to change.

And now for an encouraging chart:

Demographic Blueshift works for more than just votes. Hopefully among under-18s Muslims are already viewed more positively than Jews.
