It bears terrifying witness to what happened to everyone who got here, and paid the price of the ticket. The price was to be-come "white." No one was white before he/she came to America. It took generations, and a vast amount of coercion, before this became a white country.

“Licensing is a crucial segment of the book publishing business, especially where kids are concerned,” said Kristen McLean, books industry analyst for NPD.  “In today’s connected world, kids will follow their favorite characters across many types of media, and in a noisy shopping environment, a familiar character is often an easy pick for both parents and kids looking for the next book purchase.”

The Despair of Poor White Americans - The Atlantic
Poor white Americans’ current crisis shouldn’t have caught the rest of the country as off guard as it has.
Sometime during the past few years, the country started talking differently about white Americans of modest means. Early in the Obama era, the ennobling language of campaign pundits prevailed. There was much discussion of “white working-class voters,” with whom the Democrats, and especially Barack Obama, were having such trouble connecting. Never mind that this overbroad category of Americans—the exit pollsters’ definition was anyone without a four-year college degree, or more than a third of the electorate—obliterated major differences in geography, ethnicity, and culture. The label served to conjure a vast swath of salt-of-the-earth citizens living and working in the wide-open spaces between the coasts—Sarah Palin’s “real America”—who were dubious of the effete, hifalutin types increasingly dominating the party that had once purported to represent the common man. The “white working class” connoted virtue and integrity. A party losing touch with it was a party unmoored.
