Lamos, Steve
Journal of Basic Writing, v19 n2 p22-43 Fall 2000

Shows how students are racialized as "minorities" despite the significant numbers of whites in the program. Argues open-admissions students are discursively coded as non-white. Contends that racialization needs to be identified and understood in order to dismantle these structures of whiteness. (SG)
