In this book, Bonilla-Silva explores with systematic interview data the nature and components of post-civil rights racial ideology. Specifically, he documents the existence of a new suave and apparently non-racial racial ideology he labels color-blind racism. He suggests this ideology, anchored on the decontextualized, ahistorical, and abstract extension of liberalism to racial matters, has become the organizational matrix whites use to explain and account for racial matters in America.

Review: Racism without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in the United States

User Review  - Allison Long - Goodreads

The ideas and data in this book are quite illuminating, but the writing really got on my nerves. Too many footnotes and parentheticals, and too much self reference (ie adding a footnote to refer to a point made earlier in the same chapter). Also could have used a good copy editor. Read full review
