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.

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.
