What White Looks Like: African-American Philosophers on the Whiteness Question (Google eBook)
Routledge, Feb 24, 2004 - Philosophy - 296 pages
In the burgeoning field of whiteness studies, "What White Looks Like" takes a unique approach to the subject by collecting the ideas of African-American philosophers. George Yancy has brought together a group of thinkers who address the problematic issues of whiteness as a category requiring serious analysis. What does white look like when viewed through philosophical training and African-American experience?
In this volume, Robert Birt asks if whites can "live whiteness authentically." Janine Jones examines what it means to be a "goodwill white." Joy James tells of beating her "addiction" to white supremacy, while Arnold Farr writes on making whiteness visible in Western philosophy. "What White Looks Like" brings a badly needed critique and philosophically sophisticated perspective to central issue of contemporary society.
