Download and read online Racism in the 21st Century in PDF and EPUB In the post-Civil Rights era, there is a temptation to assume that racism is no longer the pressing social concern in the United States that it once was. The contributors show that racism has not fallen from the forefront of American society, but is manifest in a different way. According to the authors in this volume, in 21st century, skin color has come to replace race as an important cause of discrimination. This is evidenced in the increasing usage of the term “people of color” to encompass people of a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds. The editor has compiled a diverse group of contributors to examine racism from an interdisciplinary perspective. Contributions range from the science of racism, from its perceived biological basis at the end of the 19th century, to sociological studies its new forms in the 21st century. The result is a work that will be invaluable to understanding the challenges of confronting Racism in the 21st Century.

The interactive style makes it accessible to both graduate and undergraduate students, providing thought-provoking insight into a complex topic. Of special note is the book's contemporary focus on social identity formation and intersectionality. Through exercises and examples, it encourages self-awareness and strategies to help students engage in dialogues about racism." —Donna Harris, LCSW, Bryn Mawr College "In this timely revision, Miller and Garran offer an insightful and comprehensive guide for critical practice. The book’s unambiguous attention to the impact of power and structural oppression on individuals, organizations, and communities is thoughtfully paired with accessible clinical case examples and applications."—Hye-Kyung Kang, Seattle University "Miller and Garran provide a clear, comprehensive, and accessible guide to understanding and addressing racism. It is filled with useful conceptual frameworks, exercises, and tools for helping professionals and others concerned about racial equity."—Diane J. Goodman, EdD, Diversity Consultant This comprehensive text thoroughly reviews the theories and history of racism, the sociology of and the psychology of racism, intergroup relations and intergroup conflict, and how racism is manifested institutionally, between groups, and between people, providing a unique view of the connections between these multiple perspectives. Readers can then apply this knowledge to their work as helping professionals. Students learn to explore their own biases and how they influence their view of themselves and others, which strengthens their work with future clients. Fulfilling NASW and CSWE cultural competency requirements, this book teaches socially just practices to helping professionals from any discipline. Many people want to dismantle racism but they do not know how. This book gets us closer to that goal. Using critical race theory as a conceptual framework, the text analyzes all levels of racism: personal, professional, institutional, and cultural. Integrating theory, research, and practice, racism is linked to other forms of oppression with an emphasis on how helping professionals can respond. Tips on how to facilitate racial dialogues are provided. Early chapters map out the contours of racism and later chapters emphasize how to dismantle it. Readers appreciate the book’s sensitive approach to this difficult topic. Examples and exercises encourage insight into understanding racism, and insightful analyses offer strategies, solutions, and hope. Readers learn to respond to racism in all contexts including working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. New to the Second Edition: Reflects recent sociopolitical changes including "Islamophobia," the Obama presidency, the murders of young men of color by police, the racialization of the criminal justice system, and current immigration issues in its analysis of racism. More cases and experiential exercises help readers explore how racism is manifested and how to incorporate the lessons learned into future working environments. More emphasis on the intersectionality of racism and other social oppressions including class, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, immigration experiences, and disability to give readers a better understanding of the relationship between these issues. PowerPoints and Instructor's Manual with sample syllabi, teaching tips, and suggested videos and related websites. An ideal text for advanced courses on racism, oppression, diversity, prejudice and discrimination, or racism and professional practice, this book also appeals to helping professionals (social workers, psychologists, counselors, and nurses) who need to understand racism to better serve their clients.
