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.
