White Lies: Race, Class, Gender and Sexuality in White Supremacist Discourse

White Lies: Race, Class, Gender and Sexuality in White Supremacist Discourse Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

White supremacist groups have traditionally been viewed as "fringe" groups to be ignored, dismissed, or at most, observed warily. "White Lies" investigates the white supremacist imagination, and argues instead that the ideology of these groups is much closer to core American values than most of us would like to believe. <BR> The book explores white supremacist ideology through an analysis of over 300 publications from a variety of white supremacist organizations. It examines the discourse of these publications and the ways in which "whites," "blacks," and "Jews" are constructed within that discourse. Also interwoven in racist ideology are constructions of gender and sexuality--what it means to be a "white man" versus what it means to be a "white woman." Daniels finds that the themes discovered here resonate far beyond extremist organizations, and fundamentally, the ideology they espouse has much in common with discourse produced by our mainstream elected officials, our academic intellectuals, and Madison Avenue. <BR> A compelling and controversial study, White Lies gets to the heart of what it means to legitimate and sustain privileges of race, class, gender, and sexuality.
