#1750 - The Politics of Being White

In progressive Minneapolis, an open letter is written to a white candidate for city council questioning his decision to run against a Latina incumbent in a time of "deep racial pain." In California, a Colombian man who identifies with his Spanish heritage tries to join the so-called "alt-right," and hits some bumps in the road. This week on Latino USA, we look at the complicated identity politics of whiteness in the Trump era. And, we examine the question of whether or not more and more Latinos will identify with whiteness in the future.
