Item description for Racists Beware: Uncovering Racial Politics in the Post Modern Society (Transgressions Cultural Studies and Education) by George J. Sefa Dei...
With admirable clarity and directness, George Dei exposes the tendency towards the racial re-feudalization of the contemporary public sphere in Canada and, by association, other post-industrial societies. He points to the enormous opportunity costs imposed on racial minorities in the new millennium as a consequence. In RACISTS BEWARE: UNCOVERING RACIAL POLITICS IN THE POSTMODERN SOCIETY, Dei identifies and subjects to close scrutiny the new race-bending logics of what he calls "postmodern" societies in which the dwellers of the suburbs and members of the itinerant white professional middle class (the great beneficiaries of late capitalism and neoliberalization of the economy) now have become the new social plaintiff turning the complaint of racial inequality and discrimination on the heads of those most oppressed. If Gayatri Spivak asks "Can the subaltern speak?" then Dei brilliantly poses the question: "When will Anglo-dominant groups, even critical ones, ever listen?" This book is likely to provoke and influence discussion on racial antagonism for a long, long time to come.
