Race-ing Fargo

This chapter provides data on the beliefs, practices, and discourse about refugees and race beyond refugee resettlement and welfare agencies. It aims to provide a broader, richer context for refugee resettlement in Fargo by highlighting a spectrum of tensions between those who welcome refugees and those who do not. Primarily, it uses the lenses of race and sociality as markers of difference. In doing so, it is able to explain what tensions indicate about the structures within which resettlement work is done — for example, education, police, media, politics, and civil society, and a range of practices surrounding and shaping refugee resettlement in the city. It makes the case that diversity is good for a city, if not also difficult for the trailblazers who embody and support it.

Keywords:   racism, education, race, sociality, diversity, inclusion, tensions, refugee resettlement
