Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Indeed, that was were I was heading. And as wealth is concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, and the influence of the former Euro-centric empires (including the current US one) keeps shrinking, more groups that was slightly elevated will realise their abandonment.

And with the falling relative position and generally stagnating incomes under neoliberalism comes material misery in combination with spiritual misery.

I think you are on the right track with a combination of respecting their identity and focusing on the material issues. You don't have to love the hated Other that your group has been primed against for generations as long as you can get along, and maybe eventually realise that fixing pot holes etc is easier in collaboration.
