110 -- Weaponizing Fear of Demographic Changes
In an earlier podcast, we talked about whiteness as a political coalition. However, the census data show that white as a category will no longer be a standalone majority of the U.S. population by 2042. In anticipation of that, political strategists have been working to weaponize the changing demographics of the country and weaponize the insecurity that generates among whites to try and maintain power. In this week’s episode, we talk about what this type of racialized strategy means for this year’s election and why it is perhaps more worrying for the election in 2024.

Two of us are white and the other is Black. We share our different perspectives based on our experiences and those of our children, the fears we have in today’s environment and our hopes for the future.

In today’s episode, Dr. Burkhalter shares an historical perspective on the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that was put in place to enforce the 15th amendment to the US Constitution, ratified by the states nearly 100 years earlier.
