A July 27, 2015 New York Times article is entitled: “American Racism in the ‘White Frame.’ ”
However, the July 27, 2015 New York Times article warrants a separate post.
Evidence has tremendous value, especially when adequate analytic tools, and an adequate analytic framework, are available
The article features an evidence-based, analytically useful overview of the history of racism in the United States. What it discusses is of relevance outside of the United States also.
“To understand well the realities of American racism,” the article notes, “one must adopt an analytical perspective focused on the what, why and who of the systemic white racism that is central and foundational to this society. Most mainstream social scientists dealing with racism issues have relied heavily on inadequate analytical concepts like prejudice, bias, stereotyping and intolerance. Such concepts are often useful, but were long ago crafted by white social scientists focusing on individual racial and ethnic issues, not on society’s systemic racism. To fully understand racism in the United States, one has to go to the centuries-old counter-system tradition of African-American analysts and other analysts of color who have done the most sustained and penetrating analyses of institutional and systemic racism.”
