Wise's best book yet August 11, 2011
Tim Wise's books are eye openers for us in this "post-racial" world. He clearly explains why it is the responsibility of white people must oppose the racism still existing in the country. A great overview of the state of contemporary white dominance in the age of Obama. I wish his books were required reading in all high schools and colleges.

Legal gains were interpreted by some as ensuring equal treatment for all and that "Colorblind" policies and programs would be the best way forward. Since then, many voices have called for an end to affirmative action and other color-conscious policies and programs, and even for a retreat from public discussion of racism itself.
