Breaking the code of good intentions: everyday forms of whiteness
Breaking the Code of Good Intentions places the current-day white experience within a political, economic and social context by exploring the perceptions of students about identity, privilege, democracy, intergroup relations. This book documents how the everyday thinking of ordinary people contributes to the perpetuation of systemic racialized inequality and identifies opportunities to challenge these patterns, with particular recommendations for the educational system of the twenty-first century.
