Format: Paperback
White Lies was one of the books assigned in my sexualities class this past term. In the beginning of the novel, Jessie Daniels quotes Toni Morrison: "The scholarship that looks into the mind, imagination, and behavior of slaves is valuable. But equally valuable is a serious intellectual effort to see what racial ideology does to the mind, imagination, and behavior of masters."
Daniels makes such an effort with this excellent analysis of the discourses of white supremacist organizations. She repeatedly points out the hypocrisy of these organizations, and makes the astute point that dismissing these people as ignorant or harmless radicals serves "to comfortably distance the majority of whites from those who proudly claim to be racists, and thus from any interrogation of their own position within the broader White Supremacist context" (p. 9). Daniels urges us to look at the similarities between obviously racist organizations and other groups in society, for it is only in a society already prone to racist ideas that such organizations can exist.

Format: Paperback
Each time a new book of this kind comes out I hope for something fresh, new, or at least entertaining. This book misses on all accounts. But while I understand and appreciate the pressure of some universities to have their teachers publish, if only for the sake of publishing, it is still disappointing when I read virtually the same phraseology, the same slightly veiled innuendo and multiple errors of fact that have long since been analyzed, assessed and found to be incorrect at best and at it's worst a compilation of the same race-bating, and often elitists, arguments of the past forty years.
Ultimately, the author does little to explain, clarify or provide new or insightful commentary on our times, on our society or of the current problems we as Americans face each day and must eventually reconcile, despite books using skewed data, which use the same poorly constructed arguments and rely upon faulty basic assumptions about class, race, and their current place in American society.
