ABSTRACT
The article discusses the post-racialism and de-racination in the U.S. It cites an essay by Tim Wise about white privilege which was circulated on the Web and by email during the run-up to the 2008 Presidential election. According to the author, the racial problem in the U.S. has for the most part been understood by whites as a problem of African American grievances because whiteness is not visible to white Americans.
