Distinguished historian John H. Bracey Jr. offers a provocative analysis of the
devastating economic, political, and social effects of racism on white
Americans. In a departure from analyses of racism that have focused primarily on
white power and privilege, Bracey trains his focus on the high price that white
people, especially working class whites, have paid for more than two centuries
of divisive race-based policies and attitudes. Whether he's discussing the
pivotal role slavery played in the war for independence, the two million white
Americans who died in a civil war fought over the question of slavery, or how
business owners took advantage of the segregation of America's first labor
unions and used low-wage, non-unionized black workers to undercut the bargaining
power of white workers, Bracey's central point is that failing to acknowledge
the centrality of race, and racism, to the American project not only minimizes
the suffering of black people, but also blinds us to how white people have been
harmed as well.
