The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism, and White Priviledge

by Robert Jensen
£9.99   paperback  City Lights Books (2005)

The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism, and White Priviledge by Robert Jensen In The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. Dubois wrote that the question whites wanted to ask him was: " How does it feel to be a problem?"
 
In The Heart of Whiteness, Robert Jensen writes that it is time for white America to reverse the direction of that question at the heart of colour. It's time for white people to fully acknowledge that in the racial arena, they are the problem.
 
Jensen sets his sights not only on the racism that can't be hidden, but also on the liberal platitudes that sometimes conceal the depths of that racism in American "polite society." Mixing personal experience with data and theory, he faces down the difficult realities of race, racism, and white priviledge in the United States.
