With so much attention on the flames,Â?? she writes, "everyone had ignored the kindling.Â??</p> <p> Since 1865 and the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances towards full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains. The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow; the Supreme Court's landmark 1954 <em>Brown v. Board of Education</em> decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South while taxpayer dollars financed segregated white private schools; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 triggered a coded but powerful response, the so-called Southern Strategy and the War on Drugs that disenfranchised millions of African Americans while propelling presidents Nixon and Reagan into the White House.</p> <p> Carefully linking these and other historical flashpoints when social progress for African Americans was countered by deliberate and cleverly crafted opposition, Anderson pulls back the veil that has long covered actions made in the name of protecting democracy, fiscal responsibility, or protection against fraud, rendering visible the long lineage of white rage. Compelling and dramatic in the unimpeachable history it relates, <em>White Rage</em> will add an important new dimension to the national conversation about race in America." </p> </div><span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/users/wusamaster" lang="" about="/users/wusamaster" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">WUSAMaster</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 01/29/2017 - 11:01</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">Carol Anderson</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Publisher</div> <div class="field__item">Bloomsbury USA</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__year-published field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Year Published</div> <div class="field__item">2016</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__amazon-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Amazon Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.amazon.com/White-Rage-Unspoken-Racial-Divide-ebook/dp/B01D1RUOJU/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1485687572&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=white%20rage">https://www.amazon.com/White-Rage-Unspoken-Racial-Divide-ebook/dp/B01D1RUOJU/re…</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-library-thing-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Library Thing Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.librarything.com/work/17018514">https://www.librarything.com/work/17018514</a></div> </div><div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above clearfix"> <h3 class="field__label">Tags</h3> <ul class="links field__items"> <li><a href="/tags/white-rage" hreflang="en">White Rage</a></li> <li><a href="/tags/black-progress" hreflang="en">Black Progress</a></li> </ul> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-miscellaneous field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Miscellaneous</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/miscellaneous/white-rage" hreflang="en">White Rage</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/miscellaneous/black-progress" hreflang="en">Black Progress</a></div> </div> </div><section class="field field--name-comment-node-reading-list field--type-comment field--label-hidden comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2><drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=37&amp;2=comment_node_reading_list&amp;3=comment_node_reading_list" token="7KyxAfVy2XZOeypShAPujioJgJFrlXNZTLiCu-gzcck"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Sun, 29 Jan 2017 11:01:55 +0000WUSAMaster37 at http://whiteusa.ushttp://whiteusa.us/content/white-rage-unspoken-truth-our-racial-divide#comments White Metropolis: Race, Ethnicity, and Religion in Dallas, 1841-2001 http://whiteusa.us/content/white-metropolis-race-ethnicity-and-religion-dallas-1841-2001 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">White Metropolis: Race, Ethnicity, and Religion in Dallas, 1841-2001</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p> From the nineteenth century until today, the power brokers of Dallas have always portrayed their city as a progressive, pro-business, racially harmonious community that has avoided the racial, ethnic, and class strife that roiled other Southern cities. But does this image of Dallas match the historical reality? In this book, Michael Phillips delves deeply into Dallas' racial and religious past and uncovers a complicated history of resistance, collaboration, and assimilation between the city's African American, Mexican American, and Jewish communities and its white power elite.Exploring more than 150 years of Dallas history, Phillips reveals how white business leaders created both a white racial identity and a Southwestern regional identity that excluded African Americans from power and required Mexican Americans and Jews to adopt Anglo-Saxon norms to achieve what limited positions of power they held. He also demonstrates how the concept of whiteness kept these groups from allying with each other, and with working- and middle-class whites, to build a greater power base and end elite control of the city. </p> <p> Comparing the Dallas racial experience with that of Houston and Atlanta, Phillips identifies how Dallas fits into regional patterns of race relations and illuminates the unique forces that have kept its racial history hidden until the publication of this book." </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/users/wusamaster" lang="" about="/users/wusamaster" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">WUSAMaster</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 01/29/2017 - 10:58</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">Michael Phillips</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Publisher</div> <div class="field__item">University of Texas Press</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__year-published field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Year Published</div> <div class="field__item">2006</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__amazon-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Amazon Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.amazon.com/White-Metropolis-Ethnicity-Religion-1841-2001-ebook/dp/B004OBZFHE/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1485687352&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=white%20metropolis">https://www.amazon.com/White-Metropolis-Ethnicity-Religion-1841-2001-ebook/dp/B…</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-library-thing-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Library Thing Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.librarything.com/work/4665995">https://www.librarything.com/work/4665995</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above clearfix"> <h3 class="field__label">Tags</h3> <ul class="links field__items"> <li><a href="/tags/racism" hreflang="en">Racism</a></li> <li><a href="/tags/dallas" hreflang="en">Dallas</a></li> </ul> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-miscellaneous field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Miscellaneous</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/miscellaneous/racism" hreflang="en">Racism</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/miscellaneous/dallas" hreflang="en">Dallas</a></div> </div> </div> <section class="field field--name-comment-node-reading-list field--type-comment field--label-hidden comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=36&amp;2=comment_node_reading_list&amp;3=comment_node_reading_list" token="ng76jadLNlWAIgXAK0fMSdZZb78DPZfv4th0df2yxAQ"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Sun, 29 Jan 2017 10:58:47 +0000WUSAMaster36 at http://whiteusa.us Understanding Jim Crow: Using Racist Memorabilia to Teach Tolerance and Promote Social Justice http://whiteusa.us/content/understanding-jim-crow-using-racist-memorabilia-teach-tolerance-and-promote-social-justice <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Understanding Jim Crow: Using Racist Memorabilia to Teach Tolerance and Promote Social Justice</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p> "A proper understanding of race relations in this country must include a solid knowledge of Jim Crow—how it emerged, what it was like, how it ended, and its impact on the culture. <em>Understanding Jim Crow</em> introduces readers to the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, a collection of more than 10,000 contemptible collectibles that are used to engage visitors in intense and intelligent discussions about race, race relations, and racism. The items are offensive and they were meant to be offensive. The items in the Jim Crow Museum served to dehumanize Blacks and legitimized patterns of prejudice, discrimination, and segregation. Using racist objects as teaching tools seems counterintuitive—and, quite frankly, needlessly risky. Many Americans are already apprehensive discussing race relations, especially in settings where their ideas are challenged. The museum and this book exist to help overcome our collective trepidation and reluctance to talk about race. Fully illustrated, and with context provided by the museum's founder and director David Pilgrim, <em>Understanding Jim Crow</em> is both a grisly tour through America’s past and an auspicious starting point for racial understanding and healing." </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/users/wusamaster" lang="" about="/users/wusamaster" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">WUSAMaster</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 01/27/2017 - 22:09</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">David Pilgrim</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Publisher</div> <div class="field__item">PM Press</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__year-published field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Year Published</div> <div class="field__item">2015</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__amazon-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Amazon Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Jim-Crow-Memorabilia-Tolerance-ebook/dp/B015VN48SK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1485554826&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=understanding%20jim%20crow">https://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Jim-Crow-Memorabilia-Tolerance-ebook/dp/B0…</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-library-thing-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Library Thing Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.librarything.com/work/16784737">https://www.librarything.com/work/16784737</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above clearfix"> <h3 class="field__label">Tags</h3> <ul class="links field__items"> <li><a href="/tags/jim-crow" hreflang="en">Jim Crow</a></li> <li><a href="/tags/racism" hreflang="en">Racism</a></li> </ul> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-miscellaneous field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Miscellaneous</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/miscellaneous/jim-crow" hreflang="en">Jim Crow</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/miscellaneous/racism" hreflang="en">Racism</a></div> </div> </div> <section class="field field--name-comment-node-reading-list field--type-comment field--label-hidden comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=35&amp;2=comment_node_reading_list&amp;3=comment_node_reading_list" token="-dwNduMHqe45Sun6K5wS3CjWEaSwXFeWAMKa051s1gk"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Fri, 27 Jan 2017 22:09:33 +0000WUSAMaster35 at http://whiteusa.us Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II http://whiteusa.us/content/slavery-another-name-re-enslavement-black-americans-civil-war-world-war-ii <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p> <strong>"A Pulitzer Prize-winning account of the “Age of Neoslavery,” the American period following the Emancipation Proclamation in which convicts, mostly black men, were “leased” through forced labor camps operated by state and federal governments.</strong></p> <p> In this groundbreaking historical expose, Douglas A.

Why have we made so little progress? </div> <div>   </div> <div> Legal scholar Daria Roithmayr provocatively argues that racial inequality lives on because white advantage functions as a powerful self-reinforcing monopoly, reproducing itself automatically from generation to generation even in the absence of intentional discrimination. Drawing on work in antitrust law and a range of other disciplines, Roithmayr brilliantly compares the dynamics of white advantage to the unfair tactics of giants like AT&amp;T and Microsoft. </div> <div>   </div> <div> With penetrating insight, Roithmayr locates the engine of white monopoly in positive feedback loops that connect the dramatic disparity of Jim Crow to modern racial gaps in jobs, housing and education. Wealthy white neighborhoods fund public schools that then turn out wealthy white neighbors. Whites with lucrative jobs informally refer their friends, who refer their friends, and so on. Roithmayr concludes that racial inequality might now be locked in place, unless policymakers immediately take drastic steps to dismantle this oppressive system." </div> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/users/wusamaster" lang="" about="/users/wusamaster" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">WUSAMaster</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 01/22/2017 - 13:46</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">Daria Roithmayr</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Publisher</div> <div class="field__item">NYU Press</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__year-published field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Year Published</div> <div class="field__item">2014</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__amazon-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Amazon Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.amazon.com/Reproducing-Racism-Everyday-Choices-Advantage/dp/0814777120/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1485089249&amp;sr=1-1-fkmr0&amp;keywords=reproducing%20fascism">https://www.amazon.com/Reproducing-Racism-Everyday-Choices-Advantage/dp/0814777…</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-library-thing-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Library Thing Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.librarything.com/work/14600982">https://www.librarything.com/work/14600982</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above clearfix"> <h3 class="field__label">Tags</h3> <ul class="links field__items"> <li><a href="/tags/white-advantage" hreflang="en">White Advantage</a></li> <li><a href="/tags/racism" hreflang="en">Racism</a></li> </ul> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-miscellaneous field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Miscellaneous</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/miscellaneous/white-advantage" hreflang="en">White Advantage</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/miscellaneous/racism" hreflang="en">Racism</a></div> </div> </div> <section class="field field--name-comment-node-reading-list field--type-comment field--label-hidden comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=33&amp;2=comment_node_reading_list&amp;3=comment_node_reading_list" token="jQIj3xg_N6y52LxYlwvf_9ni4KW2cpbZ-fIoDDZLQWs"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Sun, 22 Jan 2017 13:46:20 +0000WUSAMaster33 at http://whiteusa.us Pernicious: The Neo-Confederate Campaign against Social Justice in America http://whiteusa.us/content/pernicious-neo-confederate-campaign-against-social-justice-america <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Pernicious: The Neo-Confederate Campaign against Social Justice in America</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p> "The neo-Confederate movement is an ongoing and growing threat to modern democratic life. This neo-reactionary movement uses the antebellum slave past as a blue print for an America which is opposed to democracy, public schools, equality and which supports a society of inequality in which there is subordination based on race, religion, gender, and class. It regards the Ku Klux Klan of Reconstruction as heroes and its ideology regarding violence is frightening. They hope to break up the United States and advocate secession. </p> <p> In regards to religion the neo-Confederates denounce Unitarians, Muslims and praise and promote anti-Semitism. They are opposed to feminism. They see inequality as the natural order of things. They are hostile to Lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and Trans (LGBT) people. </p> <p> The neo-Confederate movement is not composed of marginal belligerent individuals spewing forth racist slurs, but instead is made of educated, often with advance degrees, of person in the establishment, such as professors, columnists, authors and others, and who have substantial influence in the conservative movement. Some of their books are New York Times bestsellers. </p> <p> This book introduces the concept of banal white nationalism regarding why there is tolerance in the general public to accommodate neo-Confederacy and Confederate monuments, flags, Confederate names for public places forming a racialized landscape. He reviews a popular American history textbook showing how it accommodates the Lost Cause (neo-Confederate) interpretations of history. </p> <p> The book also discusses the geography of politics in the opposition to the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the vote.<br /> This book not only explains what neo-Confederacy is but offers a plan to defeat this reactionary force and by doing so bring about a Third American Revolution. </p> <p> ABOUT THE AUTHOR: </p> <p> Edward H. Sebesta has been investigating and fighting the neo-Confederate movement for over 20 years.

Yet, as Andrés Reséndez illuminates in his myth-shattering <em>The Other Slavery</em>, it was practiced for centuries as an open secret. There was no abolitionist movement to protect the tens of thousands of natives who were kidnapped and enslaved by the conquistadors, then forced to descend into the “mouth of hell” of eighteenth-century silver mines or, later, made to serve as domestics for Mormon settlers and rich Anglos.  <br />  Reséndez builds the incisive case that it was mass slavery, more than epidemics, that decimated Indian populations across North America. New evidence, including testimonies of courageous priests, rapacious merchants, Indian captives, and Anglo colonists, sheds light too on Indian enslavement of other Indians — as what started as a European business passed into the hands of indigenous operators and spread like wildfire across vast tracts of the American Southwest.  </p> <p> <em>The Other Slavery</em> reveals nothing less than a key missing piece of American history.  For over two centuries we have fought over, abolished, and tried to come to grips with African-American slavery.  It is time for the West to confront an entirely separate, equally devastating enslavement we have long failed truly to see." </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/users/wusamaster" lang="" about="/users/wusamaster" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">WUSAMaster</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sat, 01/21/2017 - 14:49</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">Andrés Reséndez</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Publisher</div> <div class="field__item">Houghton Mifflin Harcourt</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__year-published field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Year Published</div> <div class="field__item">2016</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field__amazon-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label"> Amazon Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.amazon.com/Other-Slavery-Uncovered-Enslavement-America-ebook/dp/B011H55MIG/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1485009934&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=the%20other%20slavery">https://www.amazon.com/Other-Slavery-Uncovered-Enslavement-America-ebook/dp/B01…</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-library-thing-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Library Thing Link</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.librarything.com/work/17270412">https://www.librarything.com/work/17270412</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above clearfix"> <h3 class="field__label">Tags</h3> <ul class="links field__items"> <li><a href="/tags/indian-slavery" hreflang="en">Indian Slavery</a></li> </ul> </div> <section class="field field--name-comment-node-reading-list field--type-comment field--label-hidden comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=31&amp;2=comment_node_reading_list&amp;3=comment_node_reading_list" token="ly0TLW9bLehRD2bFzTgPOmpc8dJgAv93QhlpYloSjQQ"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Sat, 21 Jan 2017 14:49:09 +0000WUSAMaster31 at http://whiteusa.us The History of White People http://whiteusa.us/content/history-white-people <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The History of White People</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p> "Telling perhaps the most important forgotten story in American history, eminent historian Nell Irvin Painter guides us through more than two thousand years of Western civilization, illuminating not only the invention of race but also the frequent praise of “whiteness” for economic, scientific, and political ends.

But to do so robs the millions who suffered in bondage of their full legacy.</p> <p> As historian Edward Baptist reveals in <em>The Half Has Never Been Told</em>, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, Baptist explains, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. Thus the United States seized control of the world market for cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, and became a wealthy nation with global influence.</p> <p> Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, <em>The Half Has Never Been Told</em> offers a radical new interpretation of American history. It forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery's end—and created a culture that sustains America's deepest dreams of freedom." </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/users/wusamaster" lang="" about="/users/wusamaster" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">WUSAMaster</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 01/15/2017 - 13:52</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">Edward E.
