The sense of white entitlement is seen through discourses of "what about us" when issues of race and equity are raised in the classrooms of the dominant. Even when race issues are grudgingly acknowledged there is the politics of moral distancing apparent in the dominant body "playing the race card" through evocations of "merit," "excellence" and "meritocracy". This book deals with linguistic racism and the centrality of language in the discourse of anti-racism. The contributors discuss how language is used and how, especially in that usage, race and racism are expressed in everyday practice. The authors invite us to join the journey of real, meaningful change through the poetics of words and action, thereby giving voice to the possibilities of change.
