The Miner's Canary: Enlisting Race, Resisting Power, Transforming Democracy (The Nathan I. Huggins Lectures)I liked portions of this book a great deal Its critiue of colorblindness was well done The good professors suggest that neoconservatives have long been laying the groundwork to reject race as a meaningful category That effort claims noble roots the attempt to eliminate the explicit legal apparatus of institutionalized racism It also embraces what the United States Supreme Court ignored in Plessy that putting formally neutral laws on the books that themselves stigmatize is racist Go them What that neoconservative critiue assumes out of existence is that racism didn t and doesn t just express itself through

on the it s woven into the way burdens and benefits of life in America are Distributed Though They Acknowledge It Is Not The Only Thread though they acknowledge it is not the only thread the tapestry The first step seems na ve but mostly harmless though a little high handed who is some random political theorist to tell folks what part of their identity is important to them But the second step the second less harmless The second step makes racism a personal aberration the fault as far as I can tell eually of the intentional deliberate racist and those lives have been made harder by our heartbreaking history Or as the book puts it dryly The discourse of colorblindness focuses on managing the appearance Of Formal Euality Without formal euality without overmuch about the conseuences of real world ineuality Proponents of a colorblind ethos define freedom and euality exclusively in terms of the autonomous some would say atomized individual The individual has no historical antecedents no important social relationships and no political commitments 39 And that approach not only locates the problem in the individual but it locates the remedy there as well All that is necessary to overcome racism is for an individual to become better i recommended by author of Troublemakers Chapter 4 Rethinking Conventions of Zero Sum Power is what s up Really talks about insideroutsider dynamics and what happens to those of us on the inside trying hard to effectively make change within the system Grea. Like the canaries that alerted miners to a poisonous atmosphere issues of race point to underlying problems in society that ultimately affect everyone not just minorities Addressing these issues is essential Ignoring racial differences race blindness has failed Focusing on individual achievement has diverted us from tackling pervasive ineualities Now in a powerful and challenging book Lani Guinier and Gerald Torres propose a radical new way to confront race in the twenty first centuryGiven the complex relationship between race and power Ting an autobiographical account or some sort of personal development book however this was clearly not the goal of the authors Instead they laid out the systemic nature of racism and outlined ideas of how to change things locally and nationally Occasionally the book got into some legal terminologyworkings that were difficult to understand but so much new information I was unaware of was also presented My favorite parts of the book were the vignettes interwoven with the chapters that mixed life experiences with racism and local and national movements the impacted change My belief is that influential books like INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE FALL INTO OUR LIVES people fall into our lives The Miner s Canary followed suit in being a totally unexpected lesson that I am glad I heard The CONTENT DESERVES FOUR STARS BUT SINCE deserves four stars but since this book was a little like wading Dr. Bach's Flower Remedies: Tapping Into the Positive Emotional Qualities of the Chakras knee deep through a swamp I have demoted it to three starsThe information was great and I like the main idea of using a race conscious lens through which to analyze and then transform social political and legal structures and power distribution The breakdown of the different dimensions of power was great and offers a very useful framework to use when discussing and analyzing powerThe downside the book s major concept of political race is not actually defined until about 100 pages in and even then the definition was not entirely adeuate The book did a lot of describing aspects of the political race project and what it was meant to accomplish but I am still left with some confusion about what exactly this term means Other ideas are tediously over explained Though the ideas themselves are engaging the writing is stiff and boring making this book a chore to read Given the importance of the ideas in this book it seems like a engaging book would be a effective tool for social change Cause it doesn t matter how spot on you are if no one reads your book A thoughtful discussion of structural racism with tangible examples that stick Not many non fiction books can be described as a page turner but this one And the struggle of black workers in North Carolina for fair working conditions that drew on the strength and won the support of the entire local communityThe aim of political race is not merely to remedy racial injustices but to create truly participatory democracy where people of all races feel empowered to effect changes that will improve conditions for everyone In a book that is ultimately not only aspirational but inspirational Guinier and Torres envision a social justice movement that could transform the nature of democracy in Ameri.
