Davin Phoenix, a political scientist at the University of California, Irvine, wrote
a book about how race shapes who gets to be publicly angry over politics. He found
that the media and public officials treat different groups inequitably based on the
airing of their grievances. “People of color express much less anger than their white
white counterparts,” Phoenix said. … “Their anger isn’t directed towards a particular
regime or party platform but at the system itself that they fundamentally believe
is not responsive to their interests,” he said.
