Get to know the sociopolitical context behind microaggressions Microaggressions are brief, everyday exchanges that send denigrating messages to certain individuals because of their group membership (e.g., race, gender, culture, religion, social class, sexual orientation, etc.). These daily, common manifestations of aggression leave many people feeling vulnerable, targeted, angry, and afraid. How has this become such a pervasive part of our social and political rhetoric, and what is the psychology behind it? In Microaggression Theory, the original research team that created the microaggressions taxonomy, Gina Torino, David Rivera, Christina Capodilupo, Kevin Nadal, and Derald Wing Sue, address these issues head-on in a fascinating work that explores the newest findings of microaggressions in their sociopolitical context. It delves into how the often invisible nature of this phenomenon prevents perpetrators from realizing and confronting their own complicity in creating psychological dilemmas for marginalized groups, and discusses how prejudice, privilege, safe spaces, and cultural appropriation have become themes in our contentious social and political discourse. Details the psychological effects of microaggressions in separate chapters covering clinical impact, trauma, related stress syndromes, and the effect on perpetrators Examines how microaggressions affect education, employment, health care, and the media Explores how social policies and practices can minimize the occurrence and impact of microaggressions in a range of environments Investigates how microaggressions relate to larger social movements If you come across the topic of microaggressions in your day-to-day life, you can keep the conversation going in a productive manner—with research to back it up!

The Color of Wealth

For every dollar owned by the average white family in the United States, the average family of color has less than a dime. Why do people of color have so little wealth? The Color of Wealth lays bare a dirty secret: for centuries, people of color have been barred by laws and by discrimination from participating in government wealth-building programs that benefit white Americans. This accessible book—published in conjunction with one of the country’s leading economics education organizations—makes the case that until government policy tackles disparities in wealth, not just income, the United States will never have racial or economic justice. Written by five leading experts on the racial wealth divide who recount the asset-building histories of Native Americans, Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans, and European Americans, this book is a uniquely comprehensive multicultural history of American wealth. With its focus on public policies—how, for example, many post–World War II GI Bill programs helped whites only—The Color of Wealth is the first book to demonstrate the decisive influence of government on Americans’ net worth.

In this lively introductory text, analyses of everyday conversations and experiences are used to inspire students to think sociologically about society and about themselves as social actors. New features for this edition include dialogue boxes where the author responds to students questions in response to previous editions, as well as updated 'related readings' sections directing students to the latest research. Readers are shown how to pay attention to the social world in a sociological way, and how to see the connections between their lives, the lives of others, and the patterns of behaviour that make up society. By interweaving examples looking at race, class, and gender, the book illustrates how power and privilege affect people's experiences and life chances, and how sociological thinking is crucial for effectively pursuing social change. At the end of each chapter, a situation or conundrum is presented with three questions for classroom discussion and writing assignments.

Florida, Anfang der sechziger Jahre. Der sechzehnjährige Elwood lebt mit seiner Großmutter im schwarzen Ghetto von Tallahassee und ist ein Bewunderer Martin Luther Kings. Als er einen Platz am College bekommt, scheint sein Traum von gesellschaftlicher Veränderung in Erfüllung zu gehen. Doch durch einen Zufall gerät er in ein gestohlenes Auto und wird ohne gerechtes Verfahren in die Besserungsanstalt Nickel Academy gesperrt. Dort werden die Jungen missbraucht, gepeinigt und ausgenutzt. Erneut bringt Whitehead den tief verwurzelten Rassismus und das nicht enden wollende Trauma der amerikanischen Geschichte zutage. Sein neuer Roman, der auf einer wahren Geschichte beruht, ist ein Schrei gegen die Ungerechtigkeit.

Warum ich nicht länger mit Weißen über Hautfarbe spreche

Viel zu lange wurde Rassismus als reines Problem rechter Extremisten definiert. Doch die subtileren, nicht weniger gefährlichen Vorurteile finden sich dort, wo man am wenigsten mit ihnen rechnen würde – im Herzen der achtbaren Gesellschaft. Was bedeutet es, in einer Welt, in der Weißsein als die selbstverständliche Norm gilt, nicht weiß zu sein? Reni Eddo-Lodge spürt den historischen Wurzeln der Vorurteile nach, und zeigt unmissverständlich, dass die Ungleichbehandlung Weißer und Nicht-Weißer unseren Systemen seit Generationen eingeschrieben ist. Ob in Politik oder Popkultur – nicht nur in der europaweiten Angst vor Immigration, sondern auch in aufwogenden Protestwellen gegen eine schwarze Hermine oder einen dunkelhäutigen Stormtrooper wird klar: Diskriminierende Tendenzen werden nicht nur von offenen Rassisten, sondern auch von vermeintlich toleranten Menschen praktiziert. Um die Ungerechtigkeiten des strukturellen Rassismus herauszustellen und zu bekämpfen, müssen darum People of Color und Weiße gleichermaßen aktiv werden – »Es gibt keine Gerechtigkeit, es gibt nur uns.«
