In this book cornell belcher presents stunning new research that illuminates just how deep and jagged these racial fault lines continue to be. Cornell has surveyed battleground voters from 2008 through the 2016 primary season, tracking racial aversion and its impact over the course of the obama presidency. Given the heightened racial aversion as a consequence of the first non-white male living in the white house, the rise of trump was a predictable backlash. The election of the nation's first black president does not mean that we live in a post-racial society; it means that we are now at a critical historical tipping point demographically and culturally in america and this tipping point is indeed the wolf at the door for many anxious white americans. A catastrophic moment -- color in context -- the southern strategy -- the othering of barack obama -- a long history, not over yet -- what racism becomes treason. Cornell belcher ; foreword by governor howard dean. An uptown professional press book includes bibliographical references.
