White Supremacy and Racism in the Post-Civil Rights Era

Availability: Ready to download

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 fash on. Assessing the major perspectives that social analysts have relied on to explain race and racial relations, Bonilla- 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 fash on. Assessing the major perspectives that social analysts have relied on to explain race and racial relations, Bonilla-Silva labels the post-civil 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 character - and focused on attaining substantive rather than formal equality.

    A great book for a modern take on racism in post civil rights movement. Personally felt that the book took a lot of mainstream thoughts and put them in a more sophisticated and theoretical tone. I am not arguing that this is a bad thing, was just hoping for something more "new" as far as content and contribution to the field. My biggest complaint was the methodological approach taken, I am not much of qualitative person so have a hard time reading their "evidence" based on a few interviews.

My biggest complaint was the methodological approach taken, I am not much of qualitative person so have a hard time reading their "evidence" based on a few interviews. I would recommend the book though, especially to those that are new to the topic. Gives a great introduction to what racism is today in our age, not the old sentiment or definition usually thought of.

    It's been awhile since I've read a monograph, so those theory chapters were quite the rude awakening. However, it a clear, concise explanation of how white supremacy has restructured itself in the post-Civil Rights Era to be more hidden (at least to white people) but still barring minorities from full citizenship.

    This book is the predecessor to Bonilla-Silva's Colorblind Racism. He makes many of the same points, but has a powerful chapter outlining his perspective that racism is primarily structural and that white privilege and power are exercised in rationalizing the separateness and disparate states of whites and people of color using code words that are racist in their basis.

    Really good food for thought on "color-blind racism" in America today. It's all covert and institutionalized, baby. Goes with stuff I've learned about how many blacks have been and still are a few steps behind due to their family's pasts and their continued malignment as culturally flawed. Really, really interesting.
