When questioning a “Tea Party” leader during the 2012 Presidential election, what year she would pick as ideal to their slogan, “Taking America Back”, her answer was 1957.
It’s no surprise that Tim Wise was the person who posed that question. In this CNN interview, Wise breaks down racial nostalgia and racial anxiety represented in the Trump campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again”.
What would America be like if Tim Wise became President one day? Perhaps his slogan would be, “Love Thy Neighbor: Make America Better For Everyone”.
