About the Author

David Ikard is professor and director of African American and diaspora studies at Vanderbilt University. He is the author of Breaking the Silence: Toward a Black Male Feminist Criticism and Blinded by the Whites: Why Race Still Matters in the 21st Century, as well as coauthor of Nation of Cowards: Black Activism in Barack Obama's Post-Racial America.


"Ikard's book is creative and interventive. With quite a bit of ease, he distills for the reader the ways of whiteness--to conjure tropes in the service of black inferiority and white superiority. For this journey, Ikard chooses the literary and everyday life as avenues through which we can best explore the pitfalls of the American landscape. His dealings with texts, in productive and rigorous ways, allow the reader to enter the worlds of literature and to gain richer knowledge of the ways we are ideologically manipulated by historic trends and tropes."--Jeffrey Q. McCune, Jr., Washington University in St. Louis
"Ikard delivers a blunt account of white supremacy in American culture, and a searing indictment of those who help to prop racism up. . . . The book is both timely and necessary, serving as an essential wake-up call to all white Americans who are not actively engaged in combating racism."--Foreword Reviews
