about this item

This book problematizes the ways in which the discourses of colorblindness and post-raciality are articulated in the age of Obama. Sherrow O. Pinder debunks the myth that race does not matter in the United States and reconsiders the presumptive hegemony of whiteness through the dialectics of visibility and invisibility of race. Racism's localization on the body, and what the author identifies as the bodiliness of racism, has not disappeared. As a way of thinking about race matters in the United States, the author suggests that seeing through colorblindness and post-raciality is more urgent than ever.
