The Dartmouth: Professor discusses covert racism

The Dartmouth: Professor discusses covert racism.

Though racism is more covert today, blacks are subject to the same prejudice as they were in the 1960s, Duke University sociology professor Eduardo Bonilla-Silva argued in a lecture on Thursday. Bonilla-Silva said a new form of racism has emerged, replacing Jim Crow racism.

“We are not post-racial,” he said. “This ideology is suave but deadly.”

Bonilla-Silva is author of Racism without Racists which explores the ongoing inequities experienced by “racial minorities” in a ” post racial ” age. It is a must read on our resource list for any one who wants to understand the modern face of racialized behavior and the need to re-imagine diversity.
