There Is No "Race" in the Schoolyard: Color-Blind Ideology in an (Almost) All-White School.
Lewis, Amanda E.
American Educational Research Journal, v38 n4 p781-811 Win 2001
Using ethnographic techniques and formal interviews with 12 students, examined the racial messages and lessons students got from parents and teachers in one suburban elementary school community. Explicit color-blind "race talk" masked a reality of racialized practices and color-conscious understandings. Discusses this apparent paradox in the context of U.S. racial ideology. (SLD)
