“The “Black and White” twins are all over everything I’m seeing on the internet. The trending of the story brings the opportunity to gain more awareness of what we think race is, how we allow it to influence our identity, and (hopefully) how it all really just makes no sense.”

BlackWhite Handshake

We’ve done posts in the past about the handshake dilemma between Black and White people. When Black people and White people introduce themselves to each other in the office, everyone pretty much sticks to the standard handshake (unless you work for some phone app development company where dudes where ironic t-shirts and everyone wears knitted hats all year. In which case, you can stick to the standard high five). But casual and social encounters between the two parties can result in a catastrophic collision of cultural courtesies.

The website maintained by Jeffrey B. Perry the biographer of Hubert Harrison and literary executor of Theodore W. Allen (author of “The Invention of the White Race”).

Glenn Robinson‘s insight:

I haven’t read this book, but I have read “The History of White People” by Nell Irvin Painter and through that book I learned that Europeans didn’t think much about ‘race’. The whole ‘white race’ idea started in the U.S.

From some of the confusing excerpts in this blog article, I’m not confident the quality of the writing would be very good in Theodore W. Allen’s book. However, I do expecially like his number four challenge that he posed before he passed away.

“…consider ways whereby European-American laboring people may cast off the stifling incubus of “white” identity.” -Theodore W. Allen
