An American Reality emerges in the context of “The Incident” of racism and discrimination that Dr. Ronald Barnes, the author of this book, experienced at the University of Chicago. “The Incident” is presented as a case study and is the backdrop to explore the reality of racism and racist in American society.
“The Incident” encountered by Dr. Barnes is a microcosmic example of experiences encountered by millions of minorities historically and today, on a daily basis. Anyone who gives the concept of racism any significant thought has to conclude it is a mindset that only the most simple-minded, the most ignorant, the most devious, the most unethical, or the most immoral people on earth subscribe to. The stupid mentally retarded racists are a virus in white culture and American society. For this reason, the reality of White racism is relevant to present as the topic of this book. Racism has become so prevalent and identifiable with American Society that it is normal behavior for White people to be racists or to act with “racist residue”. It is empirically established that people have a “bias blind spot,” meaning that they are less likely to detect bias in themselves than others are.
