Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Vital, eye-opening, and powerful, this unique anthology expertly presents the significance and complexity of whiteness today and illuminates the nature of privilege and power in our society. White Privilege leads students through the ubiquity and corresponding invisibility of whiteness; the historical development of whiteness and its role in race relations over time; the real everyday effects of privilege and its opposite, oppression; and finally, how our system of privilege can be changed.

The thoroughly updated fifth edition explores:

  • color-blind racism
  • virtual probation
  • socioeconomic privilege versus. racial privilege
  • racial profiling,
  • how immigration and questions of citizenship are historically tied to understandings of race
  • the racial positioning of groups that are neither white nor black
  • the commonalities and diverse experiences of people of color,
  • "flying while brown"
  • the politics of respectability in the age of Obama, and more.
