Christopher S. Parker is the Stuart A. Scheingold Professor of Social Justice and Political Science at the University of Washington, Seattle. He will lecture on his new book, coauthored with Matt Barreto, Change They Can’t Believe In: The Tea Party and Reactionary Politics in America.
Are Tea Party supporters merely a group of conservative citizens concerned about government spending? Or are they racists who refuse to accept Barack Obama as their president because he’s not white? Change They Can’t Believe In offers an alternative argument– that the Tea Party is driven by the reemergence of reactionary movement in American Politics which is fueled by a fear that America has changed for the worse.
