White on White/Black on Black is a unique contribution to the philosophy of race. The text explores how 14 philosophers, 7 white and 7 black, philosophically understand the dynamics of the process of racialization.
""Why do you do race theory? You're white." This is a phrase that I have heard all too often. I do critical race theory _because_ I am white. It needs to be done. White people are "colored" too. We need to awaken to our history of racial privilege and false neutrality in terms of racialization. In Yancy's White on White/Black on Black, philosophical-critical race theory is being done very well.
While the book description is correct in observing that "White on White/Black on Black is a unique contribution to the philosophy of race," the text also serves as a key "philosophical" intervention onto the scene of Critical Whiteness Studies. Along with the groundbreaking works of David Roediger and David Theo Goldberg, one half of this text is written by white scholars on their experiences of whiteness. Chapters of note include those by Robert Bernasconi, a well known existential philosopher of race, and Bettina Bergo, a deft scholar and translator of Levinas and Merleau-Ponty.
The other half of this text is, as can now be expected by Yancy's editorial mastery, brilliant. The Black scholars' contributions to this volume, especially those by Johnson, Birt, and Alston, offer critical engagements in the discipline known as Critical Race Theory, a domain mistaken as an area specifically reserved for critical legal scholars and American historians and sociologists.
If George Yancy has shown us one thing throughout his editorial and scholarly career, it is that Critical Race Theory, bereft of a robust philosophical dimension, is moribund." - reader's review.
