This chapter offers an analytic model for understanding conflict and coalition on the terrain of race by discussing racialization and racial stratification. In this analytic model of first-, second-, and third-order racial analyses, the first-order binary model restates the duality of the primary racial opposition in U.S. history—black and white—and recognizes that many analyses of racial and ethnic conflict follow this basic majority–minority binary opposition. Meanwhile, second-order binary analysis stays within a group-to-group binary framework, but looks at the relationship between minority A and minority B. The chapter then shows how an understanding of racialization and racial stratification lends itself to third-order multigroup analysis. It concludes by discussing the limits of building coalitions in a purely oppositional mode, and explores the need for building common cause that extends beyond opposition to white capitalist patriarchy.
