With the election of our first black president, many Americans began to argue that we had finally ended racism. Yet near-daily news reports regularly invoke white as a demographic category and recount instances of racialized violence. Clearly, American society isn't as color-blind as people would like to believe. In Rhetorics of Whiteness: Postracial Hauntings in Popular Culture, Social Media, and Education, contributors reveal how identifications with racialized whiteness continue to manifest themselves in American culture. The sixteen essays that comprise this collection not only render visible how racialized whiteness infiltrates twenty-first-century discourses and material spaces but also offer critical tactics for disrupting this normative whiteness.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"As the editors point out in their introduction, events of the last few years have disproven the idea that we are in a 'post racial' era; therefore, it's urgent that we preserve the understanding of racism we've gained from the study of whiteness. This volume reminds us of what we have achieved (and failed to achieve) and introduces to new students valuable perspectives on topical issues."--Wendy Ryden, coauthor with Ian Marshall, Reading, Writing, and the Rhetorics of Whiteness

"The caliber of the scholars who contribute to Rhetorics of Whiteness, the issues these scholars address, and the manner in which they tackle these issues are provocative, bold, and interesting."--Vorris Nunley, author, Keepin' It Hushed: The Barbershop and African American Hush Harbor Rhetoric
