Cyber Racism : White Supremacy Online and the New Attack on Civil Rights, Paperback / softback Book

Cyber Racism : White Supremacy Online and the New Attack on Civil Rights Paperback / softback

Part of the Perspectives on a Multiracial America series

Description

In this exploration of the way racism is translated from the print-only era to the cyber era the author takes the reader through a devastatingly informative tour of white supremacy online.

The book examines how white supremacist organizations have translated their printed publications onto the Internet.

Included are examples of open as well as 'cloaked' sites which disguise white supremacy sources as legitimate civil rights websites.

Interviews with a small sample of teenagers as they surf the web show how they encounter cloaked sites and attempt to make sense of them, mostly unsuccessfully.

The result is a first-rate analysis of cyber racism within the global information age.

The author debunks the common assumptions that the Internet is either an inherently democratizing technology or an effective 'recruiting' tool for white supremacists.

The book concludes with a nuanced, challenging analysis that urges readers to rethink conventional ways of knowing about racial equality, civil rights, and the Internet.
