Dermis colour: The disgrace of Silence is a strong and unapologetic indictment of our so-called post-racial second and the hypocritical, undesirable religion, and myth-making discourses that underwrite it. via a daring theorization of an intensive type of Bilding or Paideia that refuses to accept cognitive vanity, epistemological fixity, and ethical financial disaster, Pritcher has crafted a herteroglossic and interdisciplinary textual content that's written with existential urgency throughout the attractiveness that our bodies of colour proceed to endure with nice ache, angst, and alienation lower than the phobia and gravity of white supremcy. epidermis colour is little short of a clarion demand collective liberation of these whites, “those convalescing racists,” who're keen to take dangers, to workout vulnerability, and to be moved and ethically quickened by way of the ontological presence of these who've traditionally been, and remain, denied their humanity; it's a textual content that's unafraid to mark blind spots and critique our collective academic disasters at hard and doubtless removing the color-line that keeps to hang-out us into the twenty first century. ––George Yancy, Professor of Philosophy, Duquesne collage George Yancy is a professor of philosophy at Duquesne college.
