Racism without Racists: Color-blind racism and the persistance of racial inequality in the U.S.

Author: Eduardo Bonnilla-Silva

Eduardo Bonnilla-Silva’s acclaimed book documents how, beneath our contemporary conversations about race, there lies a full-blown arsenal of arguments, phrases, and stories that whites use to account for-and ultimately justify-racial inequalities. The fifth edition of this provocative book makes clear that color blind racism is as insidious now as ever. It features new material on our current racial climate, including the Black Lives Matter movement, the Obama presidency, Trump’s presidency and a new chapter addressing what readers can do to confront racism, both personally and on a larger structural level.
