Vivid and engaging, Silent Racism persuasively demonstrates that silent racism-racism by people who classify themselves as "not racist"-is instrumental in the production of institutional racism. Trepagnier argues that heightened race awareness is more important in changing racial inequality than judging whether individuals are racist. The collective voices and confessions of "nonracist" white women heard in this book help reveal that all individuals harbor some racist thoughts and feelings. Trepagnier uses vivid focus group interviews to argue that the oppositional categories of racist/not racist are outdated. The oppositional categories should be replaced in contemporary thought with a continuum model that more accurately portrays today's racial reality in the United States. A shift to a continuum model can raise the race awareness of well-meaning white people and improve race relations. Offering a fresh approach, Silent Racism is an essential resource for teaching and thinking about racism in the twenty-first century.

Structure and Agency in Everyday Life outlines the major concepts of interactionism through its leading theoreticians, from William James to Erving Goffman, to contemporary writers. The text underscores the dynamic relationship between the structures or social forces of constraint and humans' ability to act self-reflexively and constitute meaning in their lives through everyday action. The major foci of interactionism-emotions, deviance, childhood socialization, gender, the negotiated order, and the self are covered in-depth. The text presents a history of the interactionist perspective.

From both a theoretical and practical standpoint, racism is one of the most important topics that has engaged the attention of social scientists in North America in recent years. As societies become more ethnically diverse, people from different cultures are increasingly coming into contact with each other, resulting in ever greater opportunities for racism to manifest itself. In this work, Edith Samuel examines the educational experiences of South Asian students and faculty members from the perspective of 'integrative antiracism' - the study of how the dynamics of social difference are mediated in people's daily lives. Specifically, she analyses perceptions of and responses to racism in four critical areas: faculty-student relationships, peer group interactions, curriculum, and the psychosocial dimension. Antiracism scholars maintain that racism is widespread on Canadian university campuses. Drawing on the available literature and extensive interviews with students and faculty, Samuel looks at both overt and covert forms of racism, as well as structural racism, that results in discrimination in admissions and employment. She also looks at race, class, gender, history, and culture and how these interlocking systems produce unique experiences of racism for South Asians in academe. Through the exploration of the intricate patterns of South Asians' assimilation into university life, Integrative Antiracism identifies the numerous barriers racial minorities encounter and suggests a variety of approaches to fostering a more equitable education system.

In the late 1950s to 1970s, an Afro-Peruvian revival brought the forgotten music and dances of Peru's African musical heritage to Lima's theatrical stages. The revival conjured newly imagined links to the past in order to celebrate--and to some extent recreate--Black culture in Peru. In this groundbreaking study of the Afro-Peruvian revival and its aftermath, Heidi Carolyn Feldman reveals how Afro-Peruvian artists remapped blackness from the perspective of the "Black Pacific," a marginalized group of African diasporic communities along Latin America's Pacific coast. Feldman's "ethnography of remembering" traces the memory projects of charismatic Afro-Peruvian revival artists and companies, including Jose Durand, Nicomedes and Victoria Santa Cruz, and Peru Negro, culminating with Susana Baca's entry onto the global world music stage in the 1990s. Readers will learn how Afro-Peruvian music and dance genres, although recreated in the revival to symbolize the ancient and forgotten past, express competing modern beliefs regarding what constitutes "Black Rhythms of Peru."

But through all these pandemonium, one thing has kept bugging my mind. Why 9-11? Why did Bin Laden and his terror brigade chose that particular September morning to unleash their terror on America and the contemporary world. I mean, only a little hyphenation separates it from the largely fateful and awe-inspiring emergency code 911 that often signals a dire situation in America. One can speculate that the terrorists settled on that fateful date for the mundane reason that the monumental tragedies they would wrought on the so-called western civilization would serve as an unforgettable warning to the Americans and the world at large of more tragic terrors ahead and hence of many more reasons for the citizens of the world to dial 911. As you can see, this is mere speculation for it is not a gift given to any sane human being to decipher what goes on in the mind of a suicidal terrorist. But whatever way you view it, 9-11 has ceased to be just a calendar day. It has become an end and a beginning of a new era, a watershed to a new life of modified freedom and abbreviated openness that has dawned on America - “land of the free and home of the brave”. Hence one often reads and overhears, even as I write this book, a pre-9-11 and a post-9-11 America or world. And I have every reason to suspect that for many centuries to come this earth-shattering event of September 11, 2001 will be chronicled with the ancient formulary of groundbreaking events.

The last six words in the Pledge of Allegiance, "With liberty and justice for all," continue to ring hollow for many Americans and will continue to do so until it becomes clear to all Americans that it is as difficult for the African American community to see justice in the continued murders of unarmed black men at the hands of men and women in blue as it was for white America to see justice in the acquittal of O. J. Simpson in the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson twenty-plus years ago. Silent Terrorism, A Look at American Racism and Hypocrisy was written in hopes of opening and stimulating dialogue about race in America. I have been blessed to travel to many countries outside the United States of America, giving me a very good understanding and appreciation of the benefits of being born a citizen of the greatest country in the world. As great as this nation is as a whole, as honorable as its ideals are, the founding fathers left huge holes in its foundation related to race and racism which continues to divide our nation today. The tactics, techniques, and practices (TTPs) used by racist men in our society today differ from those of their forefathers. Their TTP's continue to evolve, change and are embedded in every facet of our lives, our justice system, and our government, which from its inception has been a state sponsor of terrorism (racism) within its borders. One can argue that many of the atrocities committed by the founding fathers and other immigrants from Great Britain were necessary to establish and build this nation, that excuse cannot be used to explain the continued racism, voter disenfranchisement, repelling of the Voting Rights Act, many of today's laws, and a grand jury system that continues to allow for the murders of unarmed black Americans. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, said "most of the black scientists in this country do not come from the most advanced schools" and black students do better in at "slower tracked schools." Scalia continued to express his racist views from the bench when he said students of color are being "pushed into schools that are too advanced for them" due to race-conscious affirmative action policies.
