Islamic Counter-Racist Thought Food #64

Peace Be Unto Those Who Follow Right Guidance.

Consider this:

A case could be made that racism was the meta-ideology that framed other ideologies, in the sense that its assumptions were in broad outline shared among political theorists with seemingly starkly divergent views (conservative, liberal, socialist). (p.221)

Achieving a new world will require an admission of the white lies that have been central to the making of our current unjust and unhappy planet. Global justice demands, as a necessary prerequisite, the ending of global white ignorance. (p.225)

Extracts taken from “Global White Ignorance” by Charles W. Mills. In Routledge International Handbook of Ignorance Studies. Edited by Matthias Gross and Linsey McGoey. New York: Routledge, 2015.
