Racism without Racists, ch. 1

https://a.co/5lRwn5m

It occurs to me that without ENDLESS videos on social media of ugly behavior, this would still be us. “Oh, racism is mostly a thing of the past.” And since that ugly behavior is all we see, we STILL think racism is nothing but ugly individual behavior.

from “Racism without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America” by Eduardo Bonilla-Silva – “Nowadays, except for members of white supremacist organizations, few whites in the United States claim to be “racist.” Most whites assert they “don’t see any color, just people”; that although the ugly face of discrimination is still with us, it is no longer the central factor determining minorities’ life chances”
