White Racism is a look into Racism by whites. It's titled White Racism because the authors contend at the very beginning that:

"From the perspective we take in this book, black racism does not exist. We conceptualize racism in structural and institutional as well as individual terms. Racism is more than a matter of individual prejudice and scattered episodes of discrimination. There is no black racism because there is no centuries-old system of racialized subordination and discrimination designed by African Americans to exclude white Americans from full participation in the rights, privileges, and benefits of this society."

Then on page 7 they define racism as:

"...the socially organized set of attitudes, ideas, and practices that deny African Americans and other people of color the dignity, opportunities, freedoms, and rewards that this nation offers white Americans."

So, with that as the framework (which I greatly appreciated as it gave the book a point of reference), it was clear why that title was chosen (although it isn't unique, Joe Kovel had a similarly titled book before them as they mention).

The book takes a look at racism in very specific, non-traditional incidents as opposed to a macro, generic view. Racism is expected from the KKK or the Aryan Brotherhood. Racism is expected in the deep south or amongst poor uneducated whites. But what about university campuses, or entire towns of Iowa, or from national restaurant chains or from presidential candidates?

By looking at very specific occurrences in which race was an issue they helped pull back the veil that many live under. Many, if not most, whites will contend that they are not racist because they aren't part of the KKK or they don't use the N-word, but will call blacks apes or would bar them from living in their neighborhood or other than that. Feagin and Vera separate racists into the officiants, the acolytes and the passives. Very few people are officiants, or active racists that partake in traditional racist behavior; but many more are acolytes--helpers, and more still are willing to sit idly by and allow racism to occur when they have an ability to oppose it.

Granted, White Racism is no Earth-shattering expose or some huge revelation but it is a serious problem that has existed for a very long time. It's one thing to shout "that's racist and that's racist" and it's another thing entirely to put in time and research to find out what is really racist and how far does it go. The book is very well done and very well researched and very concise at 194 pages of text.

I came across this book from the perspective of an author doing research on smalltown racism for an upcoming novel. While I found the title promising, I found the actual content less promising...

There are really only three cases that are even close to being properly documented in this book--they actually document the background and the apparent causes of the incidents of racism. The bulk of this book consists of (rather subjective) analyses, most of which are incomplete. For example, on a holistic scale, while this book mentions *justified* white antagonism against blacks, where blacks tend to expect money without working for it--it fails to properly defend (if defense is possible) blacks against this decadent view. Instead, it pushes the blame on "American capitalism," stating that while it might be true that blacks are slothlike, we should sympathize with their state because of how they were never given a chance. This particular "counter-argument" (if it could be called such) is worse than its ad hominem cousin--"blacks should get it easy because they have soul."

Going beyond the scope of the book, I must ask: how, then, do Asians make it to the upper middle class? They aren't white, and they share similar facial features and even skin-tone to blacks. If it is truely one's facial features that bar financial success/security, then how exactly did they make it? Have you ever heard the parable of the Chinese rice farmer working 22 hour days--doing *arduous* toil--in order to meet up to the standards of a full harvest? (Of course, this issue does get more complicated. Although Asians make good livings, in general, they are barred by a glass cage of sorts in that they're only allowed to rise up to a certain level--how often is it that you find a notable corporation whose CEO is Asian?)

Compelling narratives up the 0 star to a 3.

The authors speak of real problems, but address them ineffectively. By peddling generalizations of the white race, they perpetuate the victim/victimizer dichotomy which divides instead of uniting. Further, the boundary between victim and victimizer is drawn rigidly along racial lines. They fail to recognize that any progress has been made in the decades since the civil war toward a more loving, color blind society. This truly dishonors the memory of those whose blood and tears watered the garden from which African Americans now harvest financial and educational opportunities as well as self worth. A better discussion, in my opinion, can be found in Joel Kovel's book by the same title.
