James Chase Sanchez, “Salt of the Earth: The Rhetoric of White Supremacy”

In this talk, James Chase Sanchez argues that contemporary rhetoric of white supremacy is built around structures of preservation. Using ethnographic and autoethnographic research (along with film footage) from his hometown of Grand Saline, Sanchez pinpoints the ways communities preserve their white supremacy via tactics of identity-formation, storytelling, and silencing.
