There is a long history in the United States of “divide-and-conquer” politics based on race (McGhee, 2021). Such manufactured divisions have come to be so ingrained in the American consciousness that they are reflexively accepted and referenced as an essential truth (Lopez, 2014). This brief challenges that perspective and asks us to consider the profound possibilities offered by multiracial coalitions working together to understand and advance equitable public policies that benefit everyone.
