Politini Recap: Racism and the New American Majority

As the minority is rising to become the majority in America, does this mean that a shift in demographics will result in a shift in power?

If so, does that mean there will be a lower tolerance for covert racism and structural inequality? Or will racism continue to become more discrete and disguised? #Politini delves into these questions and more in our most recent episode: Racism and the New American Majority
