Prof. Christopher Parker on KUOW's Seattle Now, "Uniting a divided America won't be easy"

Submitted by Stephen Dunne on January 22, 2021 - 11:04am

KUOW's Patricia Murphy talks with Professor Christopher Parker about how the new Biden administration will find it tricky to get unity in our country right now.

Some of the highlights:

We cannot have unity absent accountability. Black voters put Biden in the White House and people of color may not be so quick to turn out next time if there is no accountability.

There is a possibility that the Biden administration might sideline the calls for racial equity in a return to normal. But this will be a serious knife edge for Biden to walk and still keep the support that got him into the White House.
