White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son - Revised and Updated (ISBN10: 1593764251; ISBN13: 9781593764258)
ISBN13: 978-1593764258
ISBN10: 1593764251

Summary: With a new preface and updated chapters,White Like Meis one-part memoir, one-part polemical essay collection. It is a personal examination of the way in which racial privilege shapes the daily lives of white Americans in every realm: employment, education, housing, criminal justice, and elsewhere.

Using stories from his own life, Tim Wise demonstrates the ways in which racism not only burdens people of color, but also benefits, in relative terms, those who are ''w
hite like him.'' He discusses how racial privilege can harm whites in the long run and make progressive social change less likely. He explores the ways in which whites can challenge their unjust privileges, and explains in clear and convincing language why it is in the best interest of whites themselves to do so. Using anecdotes instead of stale statistics, Wise weaves a narrative that is at once readable and yet scholarly, analytical and yet accessible.
