“Governing With Words”

Daniel Q. Gillion studies racial and ethnic politics, political behavior, public policy and the American presidency. In his latest book, Governing With Words: The Political Dialogue on Race, Public Policy and Inequality in America, Gillion tackles the direct influence politicians’ race-conscious speeches has had on government productivity and changes in societal behavior. He also examines how a shift to “colorblind” policies has unexpectedly reduced discussions of racial inequality. But, he says, for politicians talking about race is not as harmful as once thought and can actually be beneficial.
