Hi all, I've just submitted for proofing "Color Blind: The Rise of Post-Racial Politics and the Retreat from Racial Equity" by tim Wise. It's been read through w/errors corrected; headers stripped; page numbers/section titles present/protected; all text and headings formatted. 216 pages. Description: This powerful (and certain to be controversial) book takes aim at the common assertion that the election of Barack Obama led the US into a post-racial age. Instead, Wise asserts, the deployment of "color- blind" policies is not only a bad way to implement a progressive political agenda, but they undermine efforts to deal with race-based social and economic inequality and lend credence to right-wing arguments that these inequalities are due to innate problems in black and brown communities. As a remedy, the author suggests color- conscious policy-making as the best way to promote fairness in US society.
