I do, actually! From a philosophical, psychological, or sociological perspective (and sometimes a mix of them), generally. Most of them are specific to racism (and many of those, to Black people), though I do have some more generalized recommendations. Some of these attack the issue head-on, while others are more tangentially related. I’ve quoted a lot of these on my blog and have noted it when I remembered to do so (but I tag most of my posts, so you could look for others in my tags).
- People of Color and Mental Health Post - I last updated it in May of 2012, so some of the sources are no longer available
- The Many Costs of Racism by Joe Feagin and Karyn D. McKinney (I have some quotes I posted here) - it focuses on the effects of racism on Black Americans
- Frantz Fanon and the Psychology of Oppression by Hussein Abdilahi Bulhan - it’s really expensive but an interesting read if you can find it at a library - and I of course recommend Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth and Black Skin, White Masks to anyone
- Same with Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed.
- Color Matters: Skin Tone Bias and the Myth of a Postracial America by Kimberly Jade Norwood, a collection of essays on colorism
- Lewis R. Gordon’s Existentia Africana: Understanding Africana Existential Thought (focus on Black people)
- Blackness Visible: Essays on Philosophy and Race by Charles W. Mills in which Mills excoriates the field of philosophy for its purported race neutrality and discusses a form of alienation that differs from a Marxian alienation (this is also done in Yancy’s Black Bodies, White Gazes) and is closer to that conceptualized by Fanon
- Black Bodies, White Gazes by George Yancy (focus on Black people)
- A book of essays edited by George Yancy, What White Looks Like
- Everything but the Burden: What White People Are Taking from Black Culture edited by Greg Tate, particularly for the intro and Carl Hancock Rux’s “Eminem: the New White Negro” (quoted here)
- Shiftling: The Double Lives of Black Women in America by Charisse Jones and Kumea Shorter-Gooden (quoted here)
- Patricia Hill Collins’ Black Sexual Politics
More general or not just racism:
- Handbook of Prejudice, Stereotyping, and Discrimination edited by Todd D. Nelson - it’s a massive book with over 500 pages and a psychology focus, and is very expensive as a result, but with this book again there is the library, and there is the option of renting (or seeking it out elsewhere, hint hint)
- Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us And What We Can Do by Claude M. Steele - on stereotype threat
- The Post-Colonial Studies Reader edited by Bill Ashcroft (also available in an older edition for cheap)
- Pierre Bourdieu’s Masculine Domination and Pascalian Meditations
- Erving Goffman’s Stigma
- Kathi Weeks’s The Problem with Work: Feminism, Marxism, Antiwork Politics, and Postwork Imaginaries
- Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism - a collection of essays edited by Daisy Hernandez and Bushra Rehman - which I have quotes from here
- Pornography Embodied: From Speech to Sexual Practice by Joan Mason-Grant
- Andrea Dworkin’s Intercourse, which, while I am aware of its inherent cissexism and criticisms of Dworkin, I must recommend for its discussion of the subordination of women
- Derald Wing Sue’s Microaggressions and Marginality: Manifestation, Dynamics, and Impact andhis Microaggressions in Everyday Life: Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation - which I have quotes of here and here, respectively
- Internalized Oppression: The Psychology of Marginalized Groups edited by E.J.R. David - it does have a focus on racism (6/10 chapters) and ethnic groups in the US, but it’s different than my other recommendations in that it looks at Indigenous, Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Latin@ people as well- the chapters are:
"Does every sentence contain a verb?"
"That very much depends on your definition of sentence, contain and verb."
this is why nobody likes a linguist
That very much depends on your definition of nobody, like and linguist.
