White Self-Criticality Beyond Anti-Racism: How Does It Feel to Be a White Problem?

Lexington Books (2014)

Abstract

George Yancy gathers white scholarship that dwells on the experience of whiteness as a problem without sidestepping the question’s implications for Black people or people of color. This unprecedented reversion of the “Black problem” narrative challenges contemporary rhetoric of a color-evasive world in a critically engaging and persuasive study.
