Overview

In 2014, Ian Haney Lopez in Dog Whistle Politics named and explained the coded racial appeals exploited by right-wing politicians over the last half century--and thereby anticipated the 2016 presidential election. Now the country is heading into what will surely be one of the most consequential elections ever. Some want to focus on racial justice head-on; others insist that a race-silent focus on class avoids alienating white voters. Can either approach--race-forward or colorblind--build the progressive supermajorities necessary to break political gridlock and fundamentally change the country's direction? For the past two years, Haney Lopez has been collaborating with a research team of union activists, racial justice leaders, communications specialists, and pollsters. Based on conversations, interviews, and surveys with thousands of people all over the country, the team found a way forward. By merging the fights for racial justice and for shared economic prosperity, they were able to build greater enthusiasm for both goals--and for the cross-racial solidarity needed to win elections. What does this mean? It means that neutralizing the Right's political strategy of racial division is possible, today. And that's the key to everything progressives want to achieve.

Reviews

As thoughtful and thought-provoking as it is informed and informative, Merge Left: Fusing Race and Class, Winning Elections, and Saving America is a timely and invaluable contribution to our current on-going national discussion with respect to salvaging, repairing, and restoring our American democracy and those national values that distinguished and set us apart from the autocratic and undemocratic nation states.-- Midwest Book Review
