The Mainstreaming of Racism in American Politics

Author Richard C. Fording and Sanford F. Schram

  • Examines how white nationalism moved from the periphery to the core of American politics
  • Provides an in-depth look into the mainstreaming of white nationalism and its effect on electoral politics in the United States
  • Argues that Trump's presidential win was not rooted in economic anxiety, but outgroup hostility and white racial conservative political behavior
