What Racists Believe: Race Relations in South Africa & the United States

by

What Racists Believe: Race Relations in South Africa & the United States Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In many democratic societies, racial inequality persists despite its legal abolition. At the point of entering a democratic era, South Africa is dismantling its legally structured system of inequality. However, the structures of consciousness that gave rise to, and nurtured a system of, white privilege and predominance are tenacious and enduring. In What Racists Believe, Gerhard Schutte examines a wide spectrum of evidence, showing how the in-group consciousness of whites is reproduced and illustrating the processes under which it is maintained. He explains how and why people believe in racial inequality and how they transmit these beliefs to others. The ideology of white solidarity, its perpetuation, and its breakdown is also analyzed. In the author's analysis, he separates different strands of racism: rural from urban, and moderate from militant. A final chapter compares racial attitudes in contemporary America and South America. Students, scholars, and anyone interested in race relations, sociology, anthropology, political science, and African studies will surely appreciate the fascinating study found in What Racists Believe.

Synopsis:

Despite its legal abolition, racial inequality persists in many democratic societies. Entering a new era of democracy, South Africa is endeavouring to dismantle its legally structured system of inequality. In practice, however, the structures of consciousness which gave rise to and nurtured a system of white privilege and predominance are tenacious and enduring.

In What Racists Believe, Gerhard Schutte examines evidence which illustrates how the consciousness of whites in South Africa has been reproduced and maintained, revealing a range of social constructions and typifications of blacks. He concludes with a chapter comparing contemporary racial attitudes in South Africa and the United States.
