Cultural Whiplash

The Unforeseen Consequences of America's Crusade Against Racial Discrimination

Book - 2006
Rate this:
Law professor Patrick Garry believes today's racial problem is not silence, but rather confusion. Accusations of racism are vague but pervasive. They have become an indictment against the very legitimacy of society as a whole. With that has come a suffocating social guilt, and that sense of guilt has resulted in a steady retreat from moral and value judgments on all cultural matters, not just those of race. Garry addresses racism in America from the perspective of the cultural majority, unlike most books on the subject that focus on issues that are important to the victims of racism. Garry instead examines how whites have allowed themselves to be marginalized in the conversation on race, how the fear of being labeled a racist has resulted in whites withdrawing from any dialogue or moral judgment involving almost all cultural matters, and how racial fear and guilt are influencing the moral health of America.
