“Colorblindness,” “Illuminated Individualism,” Poor Whites, and Mad Men: The Tim Wise Interview, Part 1 | Racialicious - the intersection of race and pop culture

“Colorblindness,” “Illuminated Individualism,” Poor Whites, and Mad Men: The Tim Wise Interview, Part 1 | Racialicious - the intersection of race and pop culture

"the evidence I present in the book [Colorblind: The Rise of Post-racial Politics and the Retreat from Racial Equity] (which is based mostly on research from the field of social psychology) has found that allowing race to remain sublimated and below the surface actually makes it easier for people to act on subtle biases, because they can do so without ever having to confront the contradictions between who they claim to be (open-minded, non-racist, etc) and who they really are." Tim Wise
