About this product
- DescriptionSparing neither family r self . . . he considers how the deck has always been stacked in his and other white people's favor. . . . His candor is invigorating. -- Publishers Weekly One of the most brilliant, articulate and courageous critics of white privilege in the nation. --Michael Eric Dyson White Americans have long been comfortable in the assumption that they are the cultural rm. Now that tion is being challenged, as white people wrestle with what it means to be part of a fast-changing, truly multicultural nation. Facing chronic ecomic insecurity, a popular culture that reflects the nation's diverse cultural reality, a future in which they will longer constitute the majority of the population, and with a black president in the White House, whites are growing anxious. This anxiety has helped to create the Tea Party movement, with its call to take our country back. By means of a racialized stalgia for a mythological past, the Right is enlisting fearful whites into its campaign for reactionary social and ecomic policies. In urgent response, Tim Wise has penned his most pointed and provocative work to date. Employing the form of direct personal address, he points a finger at whites' race-based self-delusion, explaining how such an agenda will only do harm to the nation's people, including most whites. In uncertain terms, he argues that the hope for survival of American democracy lies in the embrace of our multicultural past, present and future. Tim Wise is one of the most prominent antiracist essayists, educators, and activists in the United States. He is regularly interviewed by A-list media, including CNN, C-SPAN, The Tavis Smiley Show, The Tom Joyner Morning Show, Michael Eric Dyson's radio program, and many more. His most recent books include Colorblind and Between Barack and a Hard Place.
