Genre: Social Science

"In this analysis, Sexton pursues a critique of contemporary multiracialism, from the splintered political initiatives of the multiracial movement to the academic field of multiracial studies, to the melodramatic media declarations about "the browning of America." He contests the rationales of colorblindness and multiracial exceptionalism and the promotion of a repackaged family values platform in order to demonstrate that the true target of multiracialism is the singularity of blackness as a social identity, a political organizing principle, and an object of desire. From this vantage, Sexton interrogates the trivialization of sexual violence under chattel slavery and the convoluted relationship between racial and sexual politics in the new multiracial consciousness."--BOOK JACKET.

Excerpt from Amalgamation Schemes Undeniably, there is much in competition that is healthy, but, undeniably also, competition may be wasteful. On the one hand, of course, the forma tion of trusts which are in a position to corner commodities or services and so force up the price of either against the consumer or the user is to be deprecated, yet, on the other hand, any form of co-operation which, by avoiding duplication of effort, will produce the same commodity or render the same service more economically cannot but be of benefit to the community as a whole, provided, of course, that the profit earned is not excessive. In case any of you should at this stage be wonder ing whether you are to listen to-night to a paper on political economy, I hasten to set your minds at rest.
