dc.description.abstractThe history of the United States is littered with numerous examples of historical manifestations of systemic racism and populism on the far-right. One can find these phenomena throughout the country's history. Extreme right-wing movements stand to gain a great deal from the pervasive racism in society. Gerrymandering, education, and voting are just a few of how the far-right can gain advantages from the fundamentally racist system. The adoption of policies that are racist on an institutional level can be seen as a contributing factor to the growth in popularity of far-right movements. This is not likely to change shortly, given the use of gerrymandering, laws that restrict voting, differences in educational systems et cetera. The extreme right-wing has successfully infiltrated every level of the Republican Party and utilized them to advance its agenda. While systemic racism is likely to be depended on the current political climate to be able to survive, it is also expected that the Far-Right will continue to exist regardless of the survival of systemic racism.
