The Fractured Politics of a Browning America

The US is getting more diverse. As more Americans realize this new future, it is changing how cultural and political divides take shape.

We live in an America where television programs, commercials, and movies are trying to represent a browner country; where Despacito, a Spanish-language song, tops the Billboard charts and where NFL players kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality. We live in an America where politicians on the right and left appeal to voters, with explicit references to race.
