> This presentation will explore the rising tide of white anxiety  
> since the election of President Obama, and explore the roots of  
> white racial resentment, currently being stoked by the Tea Party,  
> among others. In this speech, Wise discusses the use of nostalgia  
> and historical revisionism as key elements of the right-wing white  
> political narrative, and the importance of pushing back against it:  
> something which, sadly, most liberals have been reluctant to do.  
> Importantly, Wise examines the reasons why the "post-racial  
> liberalism," which downplays racial division and tends to skirt the  
> issue of the right's use of racial imagery, is doomed to fail. Only  
> by confronting racism directly, as individuals and in the larger  
> society, can we hope to defeat the politics of white resentment.
