The Racial State
The racial state is one that is intricately associated with the origins, development and apparent permanence of particularly, modern, western nation states. The racial state stipulates a specific racial hierarchy and hegemony which further determines how racial conflict and accommodation will be accomplished between specific racial groups, ideas, and institutions within the society. The president, as the chief executive officer, is often the official face and voice of the racial state. This chapter will investigate how the President of the United States has served in this capacity.
