"In this follow-up to White Like Me, activist and educator Tim Wise examines the ways in which institutional racism continues to shape the contours of daily life in the United States." "The essays included in this collection span the last ten years of Wise's writing and cover all the hottest racial topics of the past decade, including the political rise of Barack Obama, the challenge to affirmative action, the implications of Hurricane Katrina, and immigration. Wise's commentaries make forceful yet accessible arguments that serve to counter both white denial and complacency - two of the main obstacles to creating a more racially equitable and just society. Considered one of the leading writers on racism, Tim Wise once again challenges his readers to ask, "Where is the outrage?""--BOOK JACKET.
