Racecraft: The Soul of Inequality in American Life by Barbara J. Fields


Tackling the myth of a post-racial society.

Most of the people think that racism grows from a perception of human difference: the actual fact of race gives upward push to the observe of racism. Sociologist Karen E. Fields and historian Barbara J. Fields argue in any other case: the practice of racism produces the semblance of race, thru what they name “racecraft.” And this phenomenon is intimately entwined with different kinds of inequality in American existence. So pervasive are the devices of racecraft in American history, economic doctrine, politics, and everyday considering that the presence of racecraft itself goes left out.

That the promised submit-racial age has now not dawned, the authors argue, reflects the failure of Americans to develop a valid language for desirous about and discussing inequality. That failure will have to fear everybody who cares about democratic institutions.
