'Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on.'

Thurgood Marshall

New recommendation!



No more need for description than what these critics have already said.



"It's not just a challenge to racists, it's a challenge to people like me; it's a challenge to African-Americans who have accepted the fact of race and define themselves by the concept of race."

TA-NEHISI COATES

"I love the simple elegance with which they hammer home that race is a monstrous fiction, racism is a monstrous crime."

JUNOT DIAZ,

A most impressive work ... addressing the paradox that racism is scientifically discredited but, like witchcraft before it, retains a social rationale in societies that remain highly unequal and averse to sufficiently critical engagement with their own history and traditions."

ROBIN BLACKBURN

"Racecraft forces a quite profound reconsideration of familiar cat- egones, by navigating between what is real and what 1s made-up, and by deeply probing how economic inequality gets reproduced. It is impossible to read this rich book without being challenged and enlightened.
