Much of the 2020 Democrat presidential race has been a contest to see who can most thoroughly demonstrate fidelity to identity politics, with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s latest effort being to declare that “trans,” “nonconforming,” and “non-binary” women of color are the “backbone” of American democracy.

Last week, the left-wing group Black Womxn For (which bills itself as “focused on creating intentional meeting spaces for Black Trans Women, Cis women and gender-nonconforming community leaders and activists to talk with each other about the Democratic primary and our impact on 2020 elections”) endorsed Warren for her party’s nomination.
“There is one leader who has shown, through action, deed, and word, that a future of economic prosperity, racial justice, gender justice, and social and political equity is possible,” BWF explained. “She is a partner with a deep understanding of how racism and gender discrimination don’t just compound income inequality but are actually central to maintaining the status quo.”
Specifically, the group says, it was won over by Warren’s supposed stand against “white supremacy and misogyny,” pledge to consult with various minority and identity groups in policymaking, commitment to an “accountability process” when and if she is found to be insufficiently “woke” as president, and commitment to “fundamentally changing the internal and external face of the federal government by appointing more black women, especially trans and immigrant women, black men, indigenous people, people of color and disabled people.”
On November 7, Warren thanked the group for endorsing her, declaring in the process that “black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy”:
Thank you, @BlackWomxnFor! Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy and I don’t take this endorsement lightly. I'm committed to fighting alongside you for the big, structural change our country needs. https://t.co/KqWsVoRYMb

Many social media users found the remark less than compelling, and mocked Warren for seemingly elevating a miniscule ideological movement above the interests and contributions of the majority of Americans:
I'm not great at math, but how is a group which comprises < 1% of the total population the backbone of anything?
