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.

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.
