Format: Hardcover
Surprisingly, this compilation of essays is primarily centered around dismantling multiracialism because--as the authors vehemently argue--the multiracial movement is naively or insidiously distracting traditional progress (or lack thereof) for black racial justice. I read statements that compared multiracialism with "neoconservatism" which can be disconcerting for anyone who is accustomed to reading Marie P.P. Root's books, which take a more compassionate and emic approach to the studying of the multiracial experience.

If you are looking for a book which addresses multiracialism from the standpoint of multiracials, which addresses interesting unique experiences that multiracials trek through, then this is NOT the book for you. But if you are interested in primarily criticizing multiracialism and are only interested in Black and Non-Black race relations, then I would suggest this book.

Format: Paperback
An impressive work of painstaking scholarship, Mixed Messages: Multiracial Identities In The "Color-Blind" Era is deftly compiled and expertly edited by David L. Brunsma (Assistant Professor of Sociology and Black Studies, University of Missouri), is a collection of cultural and societal perceptive essays and writings about racial differentiation in modern society. Covering the broad spectrum of racially relevant interaction, Mixed Messages knowledgeably approaches the issues of an open society's grasp of racism, racial identity, gender in race, and freedom in-spite of racism through contributions from more then twenty-five scholars and social justice activists. Mixed Messages is very strongly recommended as an outstanding and thoroughly accessible study of racial issues and cultural trends in modern America.
