It was likely the best-written essay on the issue. He was not malicious or attacking but seeking common ground and giving everyone due, the benefit of the doubt space. I asked him to come on the show because I even as I am not completely convinced, I am sufficiently empathetic that I will temper my words to ensure that my words are not misrepresented or that I do not inadvertently offend. Ian Reifowitz is a Professor of Historical Studies at S.U.N.Y. Empire State College and the A\author of The Tribalization of Politics: How Rush Limbaugh’s Race-Baiting Rhetoric on the Obama Presidency Paved the Way for Trump (forthcoming in May 2019); and Obama’s America: A Transformative Vision of Our National Identity.
