Kurzbeschreibung

How can colorblindness - the idea that race does not matter - be racist? This illuminating book introduces the paradox of colorblind racism: how dismissing or downplaying the realities of race and racism can perpetuate inequality and violence.

Drawing on a range of theoretical approaches and real-life examples, Meghan Burke reveals colorblind racism to be an insidious presence in many areas of institutional and everyday life in the United States. She explains what is meant by colorblind racism, uncovers its role in the history of racial discrimination, and explores its effects on how we talk about and treat race today. The book also engages with recent critiques of colorblind racism to show the limitations of this framework and how a deeper, more careful study of colorblindness is needed to understand the persistence of racism and how it may be challenged.

This accessible book will be an invaluable overview of a key phenomenon for students across the social sciences, and its far-reaching insights will appeal to all interested in the social life of race and racism.

"Meghan Burke's Colorblind Racism is perfectly timed for our national post-post-racial moment. Burke provides an exceptionally clear synopsis of how the ideology of colorblind racism supports racial inequality in the United States. In doing so, she convincingly argues that we must adjust our understandings of racial ideologies as they - and the societies in which they work - adapt and change. With Colorblind Racism, Burke presents us with an updated toolkit to understand and effectively confront racism today."
Kathleen Odell Korgen, William Paterson University

"Of all the critiques of colorblindness that have emerged in recent years, the notion of colorblind racism has been among the most powerful, sophisticated, and sociological. Burke's book takes us on a tour of its origins, its most distinctive components and contributions, and the new research and thinking it is producing. If you study racism in this supposed "post-racial" era, you will probably want and need to get this book."
Douglas Hartmann, University of Minnesota
