I am a substitute teacher in my day job. I live and work in the only majority-minority town in Oregon. Our school district is 75% Latino. On election day, the students were very curious, so we talked about the election for a portion of the class period in several classes, even though social studies wasn't the subject I was teaching that day. Every class wanted to know who I had voted for and, knowing what several of them were thinking. So I asked, "who do you think I voted for?" Every class said Romney. When I asked why, the answer was always "because you're white."
It made a good teachable moment for the students, who are unfortunately so used to being stereotyped, yet didn't realize that they were stereotyping themselves. I know what the demographics say, that as a middle class white, and especially a male, that I should be a prototypical Republican. But don't forget, a hell of a lot of white people voted for Barack Obama.
