Identity Politics

Tucker Carlson on Identity Politics: The president doubled-down on both his statements and his response to the deadly Charlottesville riot, insisting he needed to know the facts and that both Neo-Nazis and the Alt-Left were violent. Does he have a point?

Identity politics, also known as identitarian politics, refers to political positions based on the interests and perspectives of social groups with which people identify.

Identity politics includes the ways in which people’s politics may be shaped by aspects of their identity through loosely correlated social organizations. Examples include social organizations based on age, religion, social class or caste, culture, dialect, disability, education, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, generation, occupation, profession, race, political party affiliation, sexual orientation, settlement, urban and rural habitation, and veteran status.

Not all members of any given group are involved in identity politics. Identity politics are used by minority and civil rights organizations to form a coalition with members of the majority.

The term identity politics came into being during the second half of the 20th century, especially the African-American Civil Rights Era.

Second wave feminism, Black Civil Rights in the U.S., gay and lesbian liberation, and the American Indian movements, rose out of claims about the injustices done to particular social groups. These social movements are undergirded by and foster a philosophical body of literature that takes up questions about the nature, origin and futures of the identities being defended.
