Trumpism before Trump

From Michael Novak The Rise of the Unmeltable Ethnics, 1972 --

[White] ethnics believe that they chose one route to moderate success in America, namely, loyalty, hard work, family discipline and gradual self-development. They tend to believe that some blacks, admittedly more deeply injured and penalized in America, want to jump from a largely rural base of skills and habits over the heads of lower-class whites. Instead of forming a coalition of black and white lower classes, black militants seem to prefer coalition with white intellectual elites.

Quoted by Roger Hewitt,White Backlash and the Politics of Multiculturalism.
