*Tacit Racism* with co-author Anne Rawls

1 min read


After the George Floyd murder, there was a new commitment among White Americans to confront our national crisis of racism. Eight months later, have we made much progress? Maybe, if we’re looking to confront racism, we are not looking in the right places. In a new book, this week’s guest argues that the kind of racism that may be doing US the most damage is also the kind we don’t even recognize.  The book is Tacit Racism from University of Chicago Press, and my guest is Anne Rawls, Professor of Sociology at Bentley University, who is co-author with University of Pittsburgh sociology professor Waverly Duck.
