It's not the individual white man, okay? It's a power structure, complete with its own domination of the American cultural mainstream, which is run almost completely by white men. The vast majority of American white men are not part of this power structure, and are, in fact, oppressed by it, too, in terms of economic issues.

The really awful thing is that so many white men, who are also oppressed, tend to think of themselves as being part of that oppressive power structure, when they're not, and consequently vote as though they were in the one percent.

That is, you might be a white man, but you're not "the man," and you should never, ever, interpret any political attacks on white men as being at you, an individual. They are aimed instead at the small group of white men riding herd on that power structure.
