Race and racism in American elections

Lecture by Christopher Parker
Associate Professor in Political Science, University of Washington

Race has traditionally played a key role in many American presidential campaigns. In 2016, Donald Trump has sought to build support through attacks on Mexicans and Muslims (among others). While bigoted arguments alienate many observers, could Trump’s campaign actually advance the national conversation about race, thereby helping to heal the country’s racial division?
