Good White People: The Problem with Middle-Class White Anti-Racism (SUNY series, Philosophy and Race)

Argues for the necessity of a brand new ethos for middle-class white anti-racism.

Building on her publication Revealing Whiteness, Shannon Sullivan identifies a constellation of attitudes universal between well-meaning white liberals that she sums up as “white middle-class goodness,” an orientation she evaluations for being extra focused on setting up anti-racist bona fides than with confronting systematic racism and privilege. Sullivan untangles the complicated relationships among type and race in modern white identification and descriptions 4 methods this orientation is expressed, each one helping identify one’s loss of racism: the denigration of lower-class white humans as chargeable for ongoing white racism, the demonization of antebellum slaveholders, an emphasis on colorblindness—especially within the context of white childrearing—and the cultivation of attitudes of white guilt, disgrace, and betrayal. to maneuver past those distancing thoughts, Sullivan argues, white humans desire a new ethos that recognizes and transforms their whiteness within the pursuit of racial justice instead of looking a self-righteous distance from it.

E. B. DuBois and James Baldwin sooner than her, Sullivan sees white domination as a religious challenge that afflicts one crew in specific yet that touches us all. ” — Ms. journal
