Campus Racial Politics and a "Rhetoric of Injury"
Hoang, Haivan V.
College Composition and Communication, v61 n1 pW385-W408 Sep 2009
If college writing faculty wish to prepare students to engage in civic forums, then how might we prepare students to write and speak amid racial politics on our campuses? This article explores the college student discourse that shaped an interracial conflict at a public California university in 2002 and questions the "rhetoric of injury" informing racial accountability in the post-civil rights era. (Contains 5 notes.)
