Why don't SJWs support Basic Income?

This is my latest contender for the best article on Basic Income: How to Fix Poverty: Write Every Family a Basic Income Check.

I keep thinking SJWs don't notice Basic Income for three reasons:

1. It also helps poor white men.

2. It's practical rather theoretical.

3. It calls for working with allies in the traditional sense of the word, people who disagree with your politics but agree that Basic Income would help people in need.

Hmm. And I fear there may be another:

4. There's no insulting name to yell at your opponents. Though "Die in a fire, you anti-basic-incomer!" could work.
