About this product
- DescriptionRacism has never been simple. It wasn't more obvious in the past, and it isn't less potent w. From the birth of the United States to the contemporary police shooting death of an unarmed Black youth, Beneath the Surface of White Supremacy investigates ingrained practices of racism, as well as unquestioned assumptions in the study of racism, to upend and deepen our understanding.In Moon-Kie Jung's unsettling book, Dred Scott v. Sandford, the torious 1857 Supreme Court case, casts a shadow over current immigration debates and the war on terror. The story of a 1924 massacre of Filipi sugar workers in Hawai'i pairs with statistical relentlessness of Black ecomic suffering to shed light on hidden dimensions of mass igrance and indifference. The histories of Asians, Blacks, Latina/os, and Natives relate in ktty ways. State violence and colonialism come to the fore in taking measure of the United States, past and present, while the undue importance of assimilation and colorblindness recedes. Ultimately, Jung challenges the dominant racial common sense and develops new concepts and theory for radically rethinking and resisting racisms.
