Title “That Applies to My People Too”: A Discourse Analysis of the Radical White Press in the Original Rainbow Coalition
 
Creator Tischauser, Jeff
 
Subject

 
Description I use discourse analysis to investigate the white press of the originalRainbow Coalition, founded by the Illinois Chapter of the Black PantherParty, to dissect how radical media is used as a platform to buildcoalitions, and debate the role of allies. Borrowing from Viraj Patel’sintersectional approach to allyship, which suggests that one’s cross-cuttingidentities creates situationally-specific roles for allies, I add acommunicative perspective to understand how allies can effectivelyrepresent and practice allyship using mass communication. In doing so, Ibreak down how whiteness is represented in radical media to understand ifit’s an inherently negative concept.
