The Racist Other.
West, Thomas
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v17 n2 p215-26 1997
Seeks to go beyond the easy binary of "racist" and "non-racist" to "rhetoricize the cultural signification of whiteness." Posits a view of identity as identification. Argues that seeing identity as a set of provisional identifications may encourage dialog about racism which is not stalled by guilt and/or denial about the connection of white subjectivities to racial oppression.
