Abstract

This chapter explores the intersection of religion, race, and nation, with a particular focus on religion. I will argue that efforts to address the question of what to do in the face of injustice and threats to democracy must take this intersection into consideration and specifically, that a broader definition of religion is necessary as a part of that process. First, this chapter briefly outlines some of the literature regarding Trump supporters. Next, I highlight some examples of pro-Trump media, including items of print and digital culture, exploring how these media reflect that co-constitution, followed by an examination of how our understandings of religion, race, and nation might be affected as a result. Finally, the chapter closes with some preliminary considerations of how to craft a response.
