Damage Control: Hoover, Reagan, Rehnquist and the Triumvirate of Racial Domination

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper argues that John Edgar Hoover, Ronald Reagan and William
Rehnquist are three of the chief architects of 21st century American
racial inequality. The paper eschews a conspiratorial explanation and uses
a legal, sociological, historical and political analysis to explore the
rhetoric and policies of Ronald Reagan and J. Edgar Hoover and the
jurisprudence of William Rehnquist. The atrophy of black political
organizations, the emergence of colorblind racial ideology and the
emergence of both neoconservative and neoliberal policies can be
attributed to one or more of these individuals. Although much of the
relevant literature recognizes these realities, there have been few
interrogations of how these three figures are in relation with each other.
But many of the contemporary social and political dilemmas (or their
exacerbation) stem from the tenure of these three historical figures and I
argue that examinations of racial domination benefit analytically from
exploring the indelible marks left by these three individuals.
