Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Racial privilege shapes the lives of white Americans in every facet of life, from employment and education to housing and criminal justice. Using stories from his own life, Tim Wise shows that racism not only burdens people of color, but also benefits those who are "white like him" — whether or not they’re actively racist. Using stories instead of stale statistics, Wise weaves a compelling narrative that assesses the magnitude of racial privilege and is at once readable and scholarly, analytical yet accessible.

Summary: "White Like Me is a personal examination of the way in which racial privilege shapes the lives of white Americans in every realm of daily life: employment, education, housing, criminal justice and elsewhere. Using stories from his own life, Tim Wise demonstrates the ways in which racism not only burdens people of color, but also benefits in relative terms, those who are "white like him." Wise also discusses the ways in which racial privilege can harm whites in the long run and make progressive social change less likely. Using stories instead of stale statistics, Wise weaves a narrative that is at once readable and yet scholarly; analytical and yet accessible."--BOOK JACKET.
