Investment, Obsession, and Denial: The Ideology of Race in the American Mind.
Journal of Negro Education, v72 n2 p193-207 Spr 2003
Examines the historical formation of racial identities and racialized thinking, using a socio-historical approach to explore the ways in which racial ideologies are ingrained in the thinking and actions of white and black Americans today. Suggests that despite much progress, U.S. society overall has grown so completely apart by a continuously crippling racial divide that what was once laboriously manufactured (race) is now pervasively perceived as natural.
