"We Want Our Country Back!" But From What?

Around the time of President Obama's first inauguration, Rich Benjamin noticed a phenomenon: Some towns were getting less diverse. So he got out a map, found the whitest communities in the USA — and moved in.

That groundbreaking journey sheds light into the political rise of Trump.  Whitopia is a mix-match alchemy of aspiration and fear.  Most white Americans just seek out a better life.  Others don’t trust the unfolding economy or the country's major institutions.   That palpable anxiety breeds a longing for stronger actual communities—and for social tribalism.  In that 2-yr, 27,000-mile journey, Benjamin explored race across America via golf, poker, neighborhoods, and schools.

@RichBenjaminUSA asks America to imagine itself in 2042 when whites will no longer be the majority.
