      The Social Significance of Racialized Emotions in Today’s America

      Racialized emotions are part of modernity; once racism emerged and races were created, the racial edifice was suffused with emotions. In this talk, Professor Bonilla-Silva will illustrate his recent theorization on racialized emotions with the case of President Trump. Specifically, he will illustrate how he has used emotions as the fulcrum of his political appeal. He will outline some ideas to produce a “feeling of equality” and how to craft a radical counter-emotional plan to move us closer to the “beloved community” aspired by Martin Luther King. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva is a Professor of Sociology at Duke University.
