Description

Many analysts suggested that Barack Obama's successful campaign for the presidency indicated the end of racism in the United States. However, using events from this campaign as case study data, I explore its many striking racial dimensions. Building on Feagin's (2010) concept of the white racial frame, I identify various ways that racial markers, language, and stereotypes shaped key aspects of the 2008 presidential campaign. Rather than revealing the end of racism, I contend that competing political actors continued to use racial framing to shape this historic election.
