How can colourblindness - the idea that race does not matter - be racist? This engaging book introduces the paradox of colourblind racism and explores how dismissing or downplaying the realities of race and racism can perpetuate racial inequality and violence. Drawing on a range of theoretical approaches and real-life examples, Meghan Burke shows colourblind racism to be a defining feature of much contemporary racism in the United States and beyond.
