Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found myself carrying this book around even after I'd read it once. Was it because people would ask me about it (mainly black people)? Was it because I wanted white people to think about the subject? Was it because it gave me immunity when I experienced covert racism and called people on it?

ALL OF THE ABOVE, and more! I kept re-reading parts and quoting from it; it was better to have the book handy to look up the quotes.

This was a great study and is a wonderful book.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Arnie Tracey on November 30, 2012
Format: Paperback
An at-times-preachy peek behind the fake poker faces of Americans (white America). The solicited diaries of college students, as they journalize the congenital racist backstage antics of their friends, strangers, families and co-workers.

To paraphrase Homer Simpson: Sad because it's true.

The road to national perdition passes through this centuries old, socially sanctioned, utterly normalized mental-illness.

Great read--Highly recommended for one and all.
