The Conversation We Need to Have

Woodruff asked Johnson to explain how white Americans are currently responding to our nation’s social and demographic changes. I linked to that segment here:

I liked Johnson’s comments. It is a three-part argument:

Theodore (Ted) R. Johnson is a senior advisor, providing counsel on policy and strategy to the Executive Office, and leading New America’s flagship US@250 initiative. Johnson’s research explores the role that race plays in electoral politics and its influence on the national narrative and the American identity.

I like his use of the term status. If you look up the definition of the word status, you will see something along the lines of: “the relative social, professional, or other standing of someone or something.”

This is, I am sure, the way Johnson is using the term. He is arguing that the standing of White Americans, relative to other racial groups, has declined.

Sociologists also use the term status. In my view, it is one of the more essential concepts in the discipline. How we interact with people largely depends on their statuses — woman, doctor, veteran, queer, black, northerner, Republican, etc.

We like to think we treat people the same. In a legal sense, we usually do.
