Race is, and always has been, an explosive issue in the United States. In his timely new book, Tim Wise explores how Barack Obama’s emergence as a political force is taking the race debate to new levels. For many whites, Obama’s rise signifies the end of racism as a pervasive social force. But is this true? After all, in housing, employment, the justice system and education, the evidence is clear: white privilege and discrimination against people of color are still operative and actively thwarting opportunities, despite the success of individuals like Obama. Tim Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and activists in the U.S. His recent publications include White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son.
