Black Power's Gonna Get You Sucka

Black Power's Gonna Get You Sucka: Right-Wing Paranoia and the Rhetoric of Modern Racism

By Tim Wise
July 10, 2010

Prominent white conservatives are angry about racism.

Forget all that talk about a post-racial society. They know better than to believe in such a thing, and they’re hopping mad.

What is it that woke them up finally, after all these years of denial, during which they insisted that racism was a thing of the past?

Was it the research indicating that job applicants with white sounding names have a 50 percent better chance of being called back for an interview than their counterparts with black-sounding names, even when all qualifications are the same?

No.Collapse )


I hadn't been going to post this (it came out early this week), but then I saw this post and OH GOD. And no bolding, because it's broken up well, and because of the way it's broken up, it's hard to pick things out to bold.

I recommend going to the source to read this, since he has links for all the points he brings up.
