White by Law The Legal Construction of Race Summary ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Insightful look at how legal definitions of race and racism perpetuate racial ineualityLily white White knights The white dove of peace White lie white list white magic Our language and our culture are suffused often subconsciously with positive images of whiteness Whiteness is so inextricably linked with the status uo that few whites when asked even identify themselves as such And yet when asked what they would have to be paid to live as a black person whites give figures running into the millions of dollars per year suggesting just how valuable whiteness is in American societyExploring the social and specifica. Really appreciate this book s attention to the utter arbitrariness of race as well as how the highly nonsensical legacy of race has become unuestionable common sense today eg we would never think of a Japanese person as white today even though back in the 1800s there was great debate invoking explicitly racist ideology and appeals to long debunked race science and that debate we have now internalized as if there is no other way to see the world I also appreciate how the book points out that we are active agents in the social construction of race ie to some extent race is what we want it to be Too often people say passively race is socially constructed without stopping to consider that each and every one of us is constantly making choices that contribute that to constructionMy only slight uibble is with the notion that we not only can but must use these same racist concepts of race to undo the damage that race caused in the first place eg race based affirmative action as a solution to the damage caused by race based slavery and Jim Crow Seems likely to me that we might be able la Sally Haslanger to decide what we want race to be and use our new conception of race as a means of achieving social justice However the conclusion which suggests that the key is actually first dismantling whiteness is a provocative alternative Not to mention my appreciation of the point that simply saying that race works differently or excluding race from our vocabulary altogether without taking any further action will not actually lead to material change which should be our true goal
