Racism without Racists

Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America

Eduardo Bonilla-Silva's acclaimed Racism without Racists documents how beneath our contemporary conversation about race lie a full-blown arsenal of arguments, phrases, and stories that whites use to account for-and ultimately justify-racial inequalities. This provocative book explodes the belief that America is now a color-blind society. The fourth edition adds a chapter on what Bonilla-Silva calls "the new racism," which provides the essential foundation to explore issues of race and ethnicity in more depth. This edition also updates Bonilla-Silva's assessment of race in America after President Barack Obama's re-election. Obama's presidency, Bonilla-Silva argues, does not represent a sea change in race relations, but rather embodies disturbing racial trends of the past. In this fourth edition, Racism without Racists will continue to challenge readers and stimulate discussion about the state of race in America today.

Zitat
As the "color-blind," "post-racial" consensus hardens, Eduardo Bonilla-Silva remains one of the few voices courageous enough to tell the unpalatable truth: that a black man in the White House does not make the United States any less a house divided. Updated to include a discussion of the significance of Obama's first term and 2012 re-election, this fourth edition of Bonilla-Silva's now-classic Racism without Racists documents in remorseless (and often hilarious) detail the white evasions that enable white denial of the reality of ongoing illicit structural racial advantage. -- Charles W. Mills, Northwestern University
