There’s no white resentment without white supremacy. If you take away the idea that America is first and foremost, and should always be run by white people, if you take that away, then white resentment doesn’t make any sense. You know, it immediately dissipates. And so I just don’t— this sounds like a strange defense of the Republican Party, but it’s like, there’s a market for this, and the market was created by history. The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates on the politics of white resentment, from Saturday’s Up w/ Chris Hayes.
