Superior Intellect? Sincere Fictions of the White Self.
Vera, Hernan; And Others
Journal of Negro Education, v64 n3 p295-306 Sum 1995
Investigates claims of superior white intelligence from an emerging race relations perspective that describes the symbolic labor used to construct a psychological and cultural self that legitimizes white privilege. Representations of the white self and other notions are critiqued, such as the construction of equality as the prerogative of whites and the myth of white superior intellect. (GR)
