    • Abstract:
      “The ‘how-to manual'for whites to work with people of color to create an inclusive, just world in the 21st century.” —Maggie Potapchuk, racial equity consultant Over 50,000 copies sold of earlier editions! Completely revised and updated, this fourth edition of Uprooting Racism offers a framework around neoliberalism and interpersonal, institutional, and cultural racism, along with stories of resistance and white solidarity. It provides practical tools and advice on how white people can work as allies for racial justice, engaging the reader through questions, exercises, and suggestions for action, and includes a wealth of information about specific cultural groups such as Muslims, people with mixed heritage, Native Americans, Jews, recent immigrants, Asian Americans, and Latino/as. Inequalities in education, housing, health care, and the job market continue to prevail, while increased insecurity and fear have led to an epidemic of scapegoating and harassment of people of color. Yet, recent polls show that only thirty-one percent of white people in the United States believe racism is a major societal problem; at the same time, resistance is strong, as highlighted by indigenous struggles for land and sovereignty and the Movement for Black Lives. This accessible, personal, supportive, and practical guide is ideal for students, community activists, teachers, youth workers, and anyone interested in issues of diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice. “A uniquely sensitive, wise, practical guide for white people struggling with their feelings about race.” —Howard Zinn, national bestselling author of A People's History of the United States “A powerful and wonderful book, a major contribution to our understanding of racism as white people.” —Judith H. Katz, Ed. D., author, White Awareness: Handbook for Anti-Racism Training
