Theories, Institutions, and Experiences
Covert racism, subtle in application, often appears hidden by norms of association, affiliation, group membership and/or identity.
Covert racism, subtle in application, often appears hidden by norms of association, affiliation, group membership and/or identity. As such, covert racism is often excused or confused with mechanisms of exclusion and inclusion, ritual and ceremony, acceptance and rejection. Covert racism operates as a boundary keeping mechanism whose primary purpose is to maintain social distance between racial majorities and racial minorities
Reviews

This is a useful one-stop guide devoted to explaining how, to borrow from Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, “racism without racists' works. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries."
