Summary
  • This book problematizes the ways in which the discourses of colorblindness and post-raciality are articulated in the age of Obama. Pinder debunks the myth that race does not matter and reconsiders the presumptive hegemony of whiteness through the dialectics of visibility and invisibility of race
  • "Sherrow Pinder's cogent and compelling critique of recent discourses surrounding postraciality and colorblindness makes a major contribution to the evolving scholarship on whiteness studies and critical race theory. A must read for diverse audiences navigating the complex racial politics of contemporary US cultures." - Beverly Guy-Sheftall, founding director of the Women's Center and Anna Julia Cooper Professor of Women's Studies, Spelman College, USA "This book becomes a necessity as it explains in academic terms how terrible crimes can still be committed against fellow Americans. Pinder is academically innovative and timely in the analysis of the malignancy of whiteness shaped by white entitlement. This book should be taught at all colleges and universities in the United states to make it impossible for young Americans to proclaim that they are threatened by their fellow compatriots. It is time that the United States assumes responsibility for all of its citizens." - Thelma Pinto, Retired Professor of Africana Studies; Former Co-director of the Africana Studies Program at Hobart & William Smith Colleges, USA; Past president of the African Literature Association and a board member of Wagadu (journal for Transnational Women's and Gender Studies)
