"I really like the range of topics covered and the focus on looking
at differences within groups. Chapter 8 [Unmasking Racism:
Halloween Costuming and Engagement of the Racial Other] looks
especially appealing in this respect. I also like the general
framing of the book, and its focus on nonwhites." -- Tomas R.
"I am especially happy with the inclusion of colorism, which all our students are keenly aware of from their experiences." -- Donna Martinez
