Abstract

Over the past decade, the Black Lives Matter movement has brought tens of millions of people together to demand and campaign for an end to institutionalized racism in law enforcement, politics, and society. This movement has been met by opposing groups which are focused on maintaining white supremacy. Glenn L. Starks writes on how Relative Deprivation Theory can explain the rise of these opposing movements where, spurred on by right-wing politicians, many whites wrongly perceive a loss of personal, professional, and political prestige as the US moves towards a culture of greater of equality and inclusiveness.
