Strategic racism, in quotes

Last week,

I read a book*

that demonstrated

how U.S. political

“colorblind” racist strategy

has been crafted to

achieve horrible ends

by concealed

means

I can’t share

my whole post

on the matter, yet,

so now, I leave you

with a few related quotes

(and a holdover link)

*  Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class

      I read something about that, and thought for a moment that it was from this book. I think it was actually from a 1962 book on poverty I just finished. If only “globalization” meant global kindness, compassion, and true transparency of elected officials (few of whom deserve the title “leader”).
