Publisher's Summary

Eduardo Bonilla-Silva's acclaimed Racism Without Racists documents how, beneath our contemporary conversation about race, there lies a full-blown arsenal of arguments, phrases, and stories that whites use to account for - and ultimately justify - racial inequalities. The fifth edition of this provocative book makes clear that color-blind racism is as insidious now as ever. It features new material on our current racial climate, including the Black Lives Matter movement; a significantly revised chapter that examines the Obama presidency, the 2016 election, and Trump's presidency; and a new chapter addressing what listeners can do to confront racism - both personally and on a larger structural level.

Color-Blind Racism and Racial Inequality in America

I have enjoyed listening to this book and will continue to listen to it repeatedly in the future. It is informative, interesting, honest, well-researched, thought-provoking, and hopeful. The narrator is also amazing! Once I started listening to it, I couldn't put it down. What a wonderful book! Eduardo Bonilla-Silva hit the nail right on the head and Sean Crisden did an amazing job narrating. I look forward to listening to more books written by Bonilla-Silva and narrated by Crisden. I highly recommend it to all.

The nail on the head.

Mr. Bonita-Silva has been able to let the people speak in a way that reveals their beliefs even as their mouths try to say something different. I would suggest this book to anyone who wants to truly understand White Supremacy in America and start a meaningful discussion on what we need to do to fix it.

Life changing

Amazing book. I’d highly recommend it. I may be giving it a second listen. Most comprehensive book on New Age of racism I’ve experienced so far.

Good info and rational argument

I am a white listener aged 65 seeking to educate myself about racism in today's society..This book fills in a lot about what did and did not change with the Civil Rights movement and era. I would also recommend reading it with Stamped from the Beginning.

This is an excellent book with tangible information and examples of systemic racism. please take the time to read and sit with the information and really unpack your own part in the system.

Powerful and relevant

First 2 chapters are densely academic. By Chap3 it is accessible and revealing. Powerful. Entertaining.

Very good

While he was critical of Obama, it's hard to disagree. I didn't like his drone program. He also was timid about helping black people. The conservatives were ready to pounce no matter what he did. Yet he also did the Bill Cosby - there kids nowadays trash talk, which I even saw as demeaning. I wrote a paper in 1994 that made some similar points, but nothing this comprehensive or thoroughly researched, etc. Mine was mostly about how white cover up their racist talk. Not so much colorblind as he writes about it - more in how racist talk has been updated since Jim Crow. A white guy @whiteprivisreal Twitter.

As biased as it gets

Complete waste of time and money. Nothing eye opening. Typical, one sided point of view. Complete disappointment
