Luskin Fellow Tyler Reny Publishes Article on White Voting Patterns after the Second Great Migration

Luskin Innovation Fellow for 2017-2018 Tyler Reny (Ph.D. Candidate, UCLA Political Science) has just published an article based on research funded by the Luskin Center. The article, entitled “Protecting the Right to Discriminate: The Second Great Migration and Racial Threat in the American West,” explores voting patterns in White communities in California in the wake of the Second Great Migration of the 1940s-1960s, when many Black families moved into majority White neighborhoods. Reny’s work suggestions that White voters perceived a “racial threat” that significantly altered their voting choices. To view the article, visit this webpage.
