White Party, White Government Race, Class, and U.S. Politics by Joe R. (Texas A&M University, USA) Feagin

White Party, White Government Race, Class, and U.S. Politics



White Party, White Government Race, Class, and U.S. Politics by Joe R. (Texas A&M University, USA) Feagin

White Party, White Government examines the centuries-old impact of systemic racism on the U.S. political system. The text assesses the development by elite and other whites of a racialized capitalistic system, grounded early in slavery and land theft, and its intertwining with a distinctive political system whose fundamentals were laid down in the founding decades. From these years through the Civil War and Reconstruction, to the 1920s, the 1930s Roosevelt era, the 1960s Johnson era, through to the Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Barack Obama presidencies, Feagin exploring the effects of ongoing demographic changes on the present and future of the U.S. political system.
