Affirmative Action: Racial Preference in Black and White

by

Affirmative Action: Racial Preference in Black and White Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Racial preference is nothing new, argues Tim J. Wise in this compelling exploration of race, privilege, and education. This book recasts the debate over today's controversial, race-based affirmative action policies. Wise deftly demonstrates that the American educational system has always been complicit in institutionalized racism and racial preference.

Synopsis:

Affirmative Action examines the larger structure of institutional white privilege in education, and compares the magnitude of white racial preference with the policies typically envisioned when the term racial preference is used. In doing so, the book demonstrates that the American system of education is both a reflection of and a contributor to a structure of institutionalized racism and racial preference for the dominant majority.
