To many, the past 8 years under President Obama were meant to usher in a new post-racial American political era, dissolving the divisions of the past. However, when seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot by a wannabe cop in Florida; and then Ferguson, Missouri, happened; and then South Carolina hit the headlines; and then Baltimore blew up, it was hard to find any evidence of a new post-racial order. Suddenly the entire country seemed to be awakened to a stark fact: African American men are in danger in America. This has only become clearer as groups like Black Lives Matter continue to draw attention to this reality daily not only online but also in the streets of our nation's embattled cities. Now one of our country's quintessential urban war zones is brought powerfully to life by a rising young literary talent, D. Watkins. The author fought his way up on the eastside (the beastside") of Baltimore, Marylandor Bodymore, Murderland," as his friends call it. He writes openly and unapologetically about what it took to survive life on the streets while the casualties piled up around him, including his own brother. Watkins pushed drugs to pay his way through school, staying one step ahead of murderous business rivals and equally predatory lawmen. When black residents of Baltimore finally decided they had had enoughafter the brutal killing of twenty-five-year-old Freddie Gray while in police custodyWatkins was on the streets as the city erupted. He writes about his bleeding city with the razor-sharp insights of someone who bleeds along with it. Here are true dispatches from the other side of America. In this new paperback edition, the author has also added new material responding to the rising tide of racial resentment and hate embodied by political figures like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, and the impact this hashad on issues of race in America. This book is essential reading for anyone trying to make sense of the chaos of our current political moment.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Sway : unravelling unconscious bias / by Agarwal, Pragya,author.(SAGE)2122741;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Section I. Hardwired -- Gut instinct ; The dawn of time ; All in your head -- Section II. Smoke and mirrors -- Back in your box ; Bobbsey twins ; Hindsight is 20/20 -- Section III. Sex type-cast -- Sugar and spice ; It's not black and white ; Swipe right for a match ; I hear you, I say -- Section IV. Moral conundrum -- I'd blush if I could ; Good intentions -- Epilogue: De-biasing 101.Experiments have shown that our brains categorize people by race in less than one-tenth of a second, about 50 milliseconds before determining sex. This means that we are labelling people by race and associating certain characteristics to them without even hearing them speak or getting to know them. This subtle cognitive process starts in the amygdala, the area of the brain associated with strong emotions. Does this mean that unconscious biases are hardwired into our brains as an evolutionary response, or do they emerge from assimilating information that we see around us? In Sway, author Pragya Agarwal uncovers the science behind our ̀unintentional' biases. Using real world stories underpinned by scientific theories and research, this book unravels the way our unconscious biases are affecting the way we communicate, make decisions and perceive the world. A wide range of implicit biases are covered, including age-ism, sexism and aversive racism, and by using research and theories from a wide range of disciplines, including social science, psychology, biology and neuroscience, readers learn how these biases manifest and whether there is anything we can do about them. This book encourages readers to think, understand and evaluate their own biases in a scientific and non-judgmental way.

Constance HilliardÆs premiseùthat researchers preoccupied with proving racial hierarchies often sacrifice scientific truth to masculine insecuritiesùrests on her examination of works of historical and contemporary figures in the field of racial research. Based on this thesis, <i>Straightening the Bell Curve</i> explores the emotional fixations concealed behind the presumably rational ones that propel otherwise clearheaded researchers
