"Suited to Their Needs": White Innocence as a Vestige of Segregation
Orozco, Richard; Jaime Diaz, Jesus
Multicultural Perspectives, v18 n3 p127-133 2016
Discourses that supported de jure segregated schools often invoked White innocence in the form of altruistic motivations. These same invocations are found in more contemporary school policy discourses. The authors of this article argue, based on the concept of intertextuality of discourse, the existence of contemporary schooling policies as vestiges of segregation.
