Overview

White Americans have long been comfortable in the assumption that they are the cultural norm. Now that notion is being challenged, as they wrestle with what it means to be part of a fast-changing, truly multicultural nation. in response, Tim Wise has penned his most pointed and provocative work to date. Employing the form of direct personal address, he points a finger at whites' race-based self-delusion, explaining how such an agenda will only do harm to the nation's people, including most whites. in no uncertain terms, he argues that the hope for survival of American democracy lies in the embrace of our multicultural past, present and future.
