Reviews

"While many Americans continue to celebrate the collapse of the old Jim Crow order as a relic of the past, Tacit Racism reminds us of the myriad ways that racism continues to influence everyday life in US society and represents what the authors describe as a 'clear and present danger' to American democracy today."--Joe William Trotter, Jr., author of Workers on Arrival: Black Labor in the Making of America
"Tacit Racism is a very, very important book. It will inform, challenge, disturb, and inspire. Anne Rawls and Waverly Duck bring to the project similar aptitudes for original research and theory joined by constructive differences--the one, Rawls, is a leading expert in applied ethnomethodology; the other, Duck, is a leader in the tradition of new ethnography. She is a bit more the philosopher; he the social theorist. Tactic Racism plows the terrain from Du Bois to Garfinkel and Goffman and sows it with the seeds of rich interview data and compelling field work."--Charles Lemert, author of Dark Thoughts: Race and the Eclipse of Society
