Race in Politics: UC Berkeley Law Professor Ian Haney-Lopez with Judge LaDoris Hazzard Cordell

Join us for what is sure to be a lively conversation about Ian Haney-Lopez's book, "Dog Whistle Politics."


Hear UC Berkeley Law Professor Ian Haney-Lopez in conversation with Judge LaDoris Hazzard Cordell. In his book, Dog Whistle Politics, Princeton University alumnus Haney-Lopez explores how politicians discuss racial issues without directly referencing race. He calls this the silent "dog-whistle" language in politics, which sends one message to the electorate while sending a coded message to a targeted political base. According to Haney-Lopez, this language is part of a long political tradition used strategically by both liberal and conservative politicians, and it has remained relevant in the age of the Tea Party and President Obama.
