  •  I've addressed this here before too (5+ / 0-)

    The thing to realize is that this site is dominated by upper-middle-class people who have had that status since they were children.  College, and reasonably prestigious ones, have been part of their lifelong expectations and identity since they were small children.   The same applied to everyone they know.  They're totally unaware of the class biases they bring.  

    Unfortunately, in American society, the realities of class remain hidden, an afterthought, even among its most "progressive" elements.  That class bias among progressives is an important part of what left the huge opening for the right to build strength in non-traditional working class places and bases.  And I don't know that there's much the likes of us can do except to be an endless croak on that topic and hope some of it sinks in.
