Ian Haney Lopez
Ian F. Haney Lopez spoke at Humboldt State University on November 3, 2016, as part of the 2016 annual Campus Dialogue on Race. Are coded racial statements--so-called "dog whistle" statements--imperiling the middle class and efforts to realize social justice? The keynote address tackles this question and more. Rejecting any simple story of malevolent and obvious racism, Professor Ian Haney Lopez explored the fundamental connection between the two central themes that dominate American politics today: the Republican Party's increasing reliance on white voters, and the destabilization and decline of the middle class. Putting the use of race in the 2016 presidential campaign into a larger historical context, Haney Lopez asked where we go from here.
