Racial appeal from a Presidential candidate
Find TWO concrete examples of a racial appeal from a Presidential candidate during the 2016 election. ONE example must come from a Democratic Presidential candidate, and the other must come from a Republican candidate. For EACH appeal, answer the following questions:
Where, when, and how was this appeal made (for example, at a rally? During a debate? In a campaign?) And of course, who made the racial appeal? Would you say the racial appeal in this message is coded (that is, subtle or implicit) or explicit (that is, direct and obviously racial)? Who is the intended racial audience for this appeal? What racial group(s) are being targeted by the appeal? What are the racial attitudes being activated by this appeal? What are the potential effects of this appeal on the political decision making of the intended audience?
