Additional Book Details
Co-Winner of the Oliver Cromwell Cox Award of the ASA Racial and Ethnic Minorities Section! Is a racial structure still firmly in place in the United States? White Supremacy and Racism answers that question with an unequivocal yes, describing a contemporary system that operates in a covert, subtle, institutional, and superficially nonracial fashion. Assessing the major perspectives that social analysts have relied on to explain race and racial relations, Bonilla-Silva labels the postcivil rights ideology as color-blind racism: a system of social arrangements that maintain white privilege at all levels. His analysis of racial politics in the United States makes a compelling argument for a new civil rights movement rooted in the race-class needs of minority masses, multiracial in characterand focused on attaining substantive rather than formal equality.
