This week, Ian Haney López, author of Merge Left: Fusing Race and Class, Winning Elections, and Saving America and Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Public Law at the University of California, Berkeley, joins the show (3:30) to explain the race and class narrative, dog whistle politics, and how defeating racism is essential to combat the climate crisis. We discuss strategies for building a broad, multi-racial progressive coalition, how this compares to historical efforts, and how we got here.
