Welcome to the Race, Social Class, and Politics' Blog!

I would like to welcome you to my blog!  My goal is to provide a critical look at United States' politics, with a focus on race/ethnicity and social class.  Historically, the role of race and social class in politics was very overt.  For instance, American Indians/Native Americans were legally required to move west of the Mississippi River.  Blacks are written into the Constitution as three-fifths of a person.  Contemporary politics and laws, though, are very different.  The racial/social class impact is much more subtle, where it is not readily identifiable.  The purpose of this blog is to highlight the true impact of American politics and provide insight on the groups that are often underrepresented in discussions.  I look forward to us going through this journey together!
