Overview

Learning To Be White

Thandeka explores the politics of the white experience in America. Tracing the links between religion, class, and race, she reveals the child abuse, ethnic conflicts, class exploitation, poor self-esteem, and a general feeling of self-contempt that are the wages of whiteness.

This is a major work and contribution to literature linking race, class and religion in America. I am aware of no other author who has so clearly argued the psychological foundation of racism in America, both its subtle and violent forms, and who has been able to make historical links as well. The breadth of her reading and integration is astonishing. Again this is a must read for all who are seriously interested in understanding these issues.
