White Privilege: The Myth of a Post-Racial Society

by Kalwant Bhopal - £12.99  Policy Press (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781447335979 | ISBN 10: 144733597x

Description Author Contents Reviews Why and how do those from black and minority ethnic communities continue to be marginalised? Despite claims that we now live in a post-racial society, race continues to disadvantage those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
 
Kalwant Bhopal explores how neoliberal policy making has increased rather than decreased discrimination faced by those from non-white backgrounds. She also shows how certain types of whiteness are not privileged; Gypsies and Travellers, for example, remain marginalised and disadvantaged in society.
 
Drawing on topical debates and supported by empirical data, this important book examines the impact of race on wider issues of inequality and difference in society.
