As Racist as We Wish to Be: Project RACE, “The Talk”, Obama and the Fear of Blackness

Via Scoop.itMixed American Life

by Steven F. Riley

 

Three years later and not a day wiser…

 

…in a still pre-post-racial America…

 

Accepting and embracing a mixed-race identity hardly reveals racial progress. As it is currently constructed, mixed-race identity does not dismantle racial hierarchies. Rather, it reiterates white supremacy by attempting to etch a space for itself somewhere under whiteness–which it knows it can never access–and definitely above blackness.

 

 

Thus in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin tragedy when multitudes of commentators of all racialized identities proclaim “We are Trayvon,” Graham and Project RACE, proclaim “We are not black.”
