Danziger comments on the influence of 'racialized rhetoric' in presidential campaigning

a PSC In The News reference, 2012

"The poor largely forgotten as a presidential campaign issue" - Philadelphia Inquirer. 10/24/2012.

In this story on why President Obama and Mitt Romney are steering away from discussing poverty on the campaign trail, Sheldon Danziger suggests that it's in reaction to racialized criticisms of entitlement programs as dependency producing for segments of the population. "Say the phrase struggling middle class and you conjure a vision of a white, two-parent family," he said. "Say poor person and the picture is that of a single black mother."
