Tea Talk: Black Men as Ritual Sacrifice for the Creation of White Identity

February 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

FREE

Most conversations about race focus on inter-racial violence and competition (whites v. people of color). This talk explores intra-racial violence and competition (elite whites v working class and poor whites) as the origin and purpose behind the creation of what we call “white” and how this designation is maintained through ritual violence and the ritual use of a sacrificial class of underprivileged people to diffuse that competition.
Warning: PowerPoint presentation contains graphic images.
