Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class by Ian Haney Lopez describes forms of discrimination that are akin to that of a dog whistle: they may be imperceptible to some, but to others they are a nuisance. For instance, mentions Lopez, President Ronald Reagan used dog whistle language by describing people of color in need of food stamps as “welfare queens” and “strapping young bucks.” Lopez explains how this language is still used by politicians and plutocrats today at a heightened level following the election of Obama, and it has led to the demolition of unions, the defunding of public schools, and an increase in wealth inequality.
