Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Though many laws have been put in place to insure the rights of minorities in the United States, there are still questions about whether the beliefs of the white-majority population regarding minorities have changed. Has the push for political correctness encouraged people to rethink their beliefs? This book shows that in many cases the white majority still holds negative stereotypes about minorities and that many still believe that whites are better. Using extensive research and interviews, Bonilla-Silva (sociology, Texas A&M Univ.) discusses the history of discrimination in the United States and how in many cases beliefs have not changed but have just been moved underground. He also shows that institutional racism still plays a role in society. With its extensive bibliography and end notes, this book will find a home in academic libraries.

Bonilla-Silva (sociology, Texas A&M U.) addresses the reasons that black Americans and other racial minorities lag behind whites in terms of income, wealth, occupational and health status, educational attainment, and other social indicators. Providing a new formulation of what "racism" and "prejudice" are, Bonilla-Silva argues that white supremacy and racial ideology are the most important sociological variables to explain the status of minorities. He finds that since the Jim Crow period, a new racial ideology has emerged in which white privilege continues through subtle institutional<-->and apparently nonracial<-->means. He shows how this new "color-blind racism" helps sustain relations of domination, leaving black Americans "at the bottom of the well." Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Award Winning Book

    This book was the co-winner of the 2002 Oliver Cox award given by the American Sociological Association. The book combines powerful theoretical chapters with substantive chapters describing the subtle and slippery yet effective post-civil rights' racial structure (he labels it "the new racism) and racial ideology (color blind racism) of the United States. This is a solid contribution to the area of race and ethnicity and an excellent choice for courses on racial and ethnic matters in the United States. Professors searching for challenging books on the nature of contemporary racial discourse need not look elsewhere.
