Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority (City Lights Open Media)

Tim Wise

Paperback

OUT OF STOCK

Wise, an educator and racial justice advocate, presents an analysis of race relations and ideology in the contemporary US, as a letter addressed to its 200 million white citizens. As demographic trends portend a more colorful United States, and as its first black president begins a second term, Wise confronts the white fear of losing cultural hegemony, on the one hand, and the politics of resentment that has been both a real and contrived source of right-wing power in national politics. The book is aimed at a reasonable audience who may describe themselves as "not a racist," but whose assumptions about race and social power make them underestimate or misrecognize racism's persistence in the US.
