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.
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.
