Whiteness
Race and Power

Session
3

When we talk about race we typically focus on racial minorities. Today, it seems much less uncomfortable to talk about what it means to be white. In this session we jump in. What does it mean to be white? Who gets to be white and why? Professor Brian Lowery talks with Ian López, the author of White by Law and of Merge Left: Fusing Race and Class, Winning Elections, and Saving America (2019). They discuss how the concept of whiteness was constructed, how current law maintains unequal outcomes, and ways to overcome the political weaponization of whiteness.
