520 |a This book examines how white privilege operates as unseen, invisible, even seemingly nonexistent, and suggest that because of this hidden mode of operation, something more indirect than and much different from conscious argumentation against white privilege is needed to combat it. It is a personal and self-searching book in which Shannon Sullivan interrogates her own whiteness and how being white has affected her. By looking closely at the subtleties of white domination, she issues a call for other white people to own up to their unspoken privilege and confront environments that condone or perpetuate it. Sullivan's theorizing about race and privilege draws on American pragmatism, psychology, race theory, and feminist thought. As it articulates a way to live beyond the barriers that white privilege has created, this book offers readers a clear and honest confrontation with a trenchant and vexing concern.
