Show Notes

Some manifestations of racism are easily identifiable.  Practices that do things like promoting racial residential segregation, facilitating race-based job discrimination, or the unequal application of criminal law across races are clear examples of social behaviors that harm people of color and perpetuate white supremacy.  Others are difficult to see, even when looking directly at them.  In this episode, we will discuss how white supremacy subtly suffuses culture through a look at Raul Perez's new book, The Souls of White Jokes: How Racist Humor Fuels White Supremacy (2022, Stanford University Press), and related work being done in the Sociology of Racial and Ethnic Minorities.
