    White Racial Reasoning: Rational Racism in the Perceptions of White Males


    Finally some non-biased truth. Some key points from this excellent paper:


    *WHITENESS AND RACIAL REASONING


    Essays on whiteness point out that whites possess the ability to be unaware of
    their privilege in the world
    (Bonilla-Silva 2001, p. 7; Frankenberg 2001, p. 76, 81, 2000, p. 447; Dyer 2000, p. 541; Montag 1997, p. 284). This absence of awareness developed through a purposeful historical universalization of whiteness, by which, in this case, being human is equated with being white (Bonilla-Silva 2001, p. 189; Frankenberg 2001, 73, 75, 76; Dyer 2000, p. 539; Feagin 2000, p. 177; Montag 1997, p. 285; Feagin and Vera 1995, p. 139). Although whites’ conceptions about race may not be consciously white, this allows the racialized Other to speak only for their race while it allows whites, utilizing color coded and colorblind constructs, to speak for the whole of humanity (Bonilla-Silva 2001, p. 140-142; Dyer 2000, p. 539). This ethnocentrism and restriction on others’ humanness is the essence of what I call white racial reasoning (WRR): the underlying logic informing the progressively reductionist way white (males) think about race. To reiterate, the term refers to the situational modes of reasoning whites engage in based on the normalized nature of historical racism to continue that normalization and perpetuate privilege.





    * In fact, many whites want to believe that race no longer matters (Doane 2003;
    Mckinney and Feagin 2003). Thus, white people are likely to hide their race biases behind such color coded and colorblind terms as family values, inner cities, crime, culture
    of dependency, and bloated government



    * Acknowledging institutional racism while still blaming blacks allows whites to
    avail themselves as nonracist while recreating the racist ideology of this country under an
    egalitarian veil.

    If it comes from your posts Ass Chucker, it's automatically suspect, as you have a tendency to pull shit off of blogs, opinion sites and others that support your stupid views.

    Sing us "Mammie" clown.

    Basically you have no response to the topic, attack the person but avoid the argument.

    Where is your fucking evidence from REAL news sources? Or.......are you using the same "reliable sources" that you use when you post crap about gays?

    Haven't seen a reliable source from you YET Ass Chucker.

    Ass Chucker........if you could ever learn to use REAL facts (you did it once boy, you can do it again), then you may end up being able to make a point.

    Until then? The only point is the one at the top of your skull.

    Why did you post this? Are you looking for repairations because your rent is due?
