Does Yang want white supremacists’ votes?

Yang has mentioned that he is concerned for poor whites as their unemployment will trigger chaos and violence. Does this serve to downplay the African American’s struggle and give an easy handle for white supremacists to latch onto?

A: No. Yang rejects support from white supremacists, and has said so publicly many times. If you look at what he said in context, he wasn’t saying the problems of white people are more important than anyone else’s. He was saying that some of the problems of white supremacy and violence have roots in economic problems.
