    Divide the parties by race and then the fight becomes ethnic not economic and the plutocrats just pull the strings.

      and divisiveness is all that elections have been about for years, as I can tell.

      If the PtB keep the masses squabbling and fighting one another, it makes their jobs of fleecing the rest of us, much simpler.
