"An outstanding overview of theories of racism...an excellent read for students and scholars in the field. Summing Up: Highly recommended." -CHOICE
"Latinos Facing Racism is an up to date, clear and well documented [book] that highlights the pervasiveness of the dynamics of racial discrimination still active in American society."
"Feagin and Cobas wake the daydreamer who assumed in 2013 that Latinos are now viewed as American as apple pie, that they are seen as the warp and weave of our nation's fabric. With passionate prose and solid scholarship, they point out the stereotypes, images, words, narratives, ways of speaking, and other white racial framings that perpetuate two ranks of American citizens. Their volume is a needed memorandum to remind us that the freedom from discrimination has not been achieved in the United States."
-Otto Santa Ana, University of California-Los Angeles
"The explanatory power of the `white racial frame,' grounded in compelling histories, elucidates these detailed accounts of Latino experiences in the United States. Attention to the power of the frame to shape these experiences is balanced by emphasis on a long tradition of Latino resistance. An original, important, and useful book."
-Jane H. Hill, University of Arizona
