The book challenges the students to rethink dominant paradigms on race in the U.S., but [they] respond extremely well to it. The new chapter is very engaging. (Mary Romero, Arizona State University)
In the new chapter Bonilla-Silva provides a stinging critique of Obama and the very notion that the election of a black man has a positive impact on the state of racial inequality in America. This is a powerful chapter for a very powerful book. (Hayward Derrick Horton, SUNY - Albany)
Praise for the previous edition:Every white American should have the privilege to have that eureka moment: Ah! Now I understand what being white means, in the most profound sense.' The entire world looks different from then on. Racism without Racists
leads white Americans to that very moment of discovery. (Judith Blau, UNC, Chapel Hill)
Praise for the previous edition:Racism without Racists
will make many readers uncomfortable, as it should. With care and a wicked sense of humor, Eduardo Bonilla-Silva explores the kind of subtle, everyday racism that some of 'our best friends' unconsciously perpetuate. (Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination)
