Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Racism Without Racist

After reading this book  I didnt realize that there were so many different methods and rhetoric used to avoid being called a “racist.” Such as, “some of my good friends are black..” But, I do believe that the book is one-sided in that it portrays all Whites to be either full blown racist, hidden racists, or someone with partially racist views. I do believe that there are Whites that do engage in discriminatory acts against minorities but not to the extent that the book describes. I think that any ethnic group  can be guilty of being racist against another and that there is a lot of discrimination between individuals of the same race. I think that if the author would have included this the book wouldnt seem so polarized.
