Question with Obama, Obama fans, and the working class

Foreign policy has gained a lot of attention during this campaign, as it rightly should, but subprime mortgages, pay day loan collapses, banking trouble, price increases, and gas prices have been wracking the U.S. Since the impact of all of these is most acutely felt by those in lower income brackets and since lower income brackets don't discriminate against particular racial and ethnic groups, do Obama fans feel that victims of all of this who are white and working class matter less because of their race?

The irony during the last days of the showdown between Hillary and Obama is that the people portrayed by the Obamanistas as being dumb, racist, mouthbreathers were and are some of the same people affected the most by the economic downturn in the United States. These people are also some of the worst hit by NAFTA and the WTO.
