Abstract

Based on extensive empirical research and drawing from literature on racialization, white privilege, urban neoliberalism, and disaster capitalism in Gulfport and Biloxi (Mississippi), this article shows that the “opportunity” the storm produced was to remake the landscape in ways that deepen the neoliberalization of governance in the region. The justi-fication of these governing and accumulation strategies hinged on the twin discourses of the region as a “blank slate” and the racial narrative of banal multiculturalism.” The relationship between the governing and accumulation strategies on the one hand, and the cultural politics of race are best understood through the lens of the often-overlooked regulation approach
