Analyzing the work of preeminent legal scholars such as Patricia Williams, Derrick Bell, Lani Guinier, and Richard Delgado, Dan Subotnik argues that race and gender theorists poison our social and intellectual environment by almost deliberately misinterpreting racial interaction and data and turning white males into victimizers. Far from energizing women and minorities, Subotnik concludes, theorists divert their energies from implementing Americas social justice agenda.Insisting, in the words of James Baldwin, that not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced, and that thoughtful Americans regardless of race and gender can handle frank conversations about difficult topics, Subotniks critique of race and gender theory pulls no punches as it confronts such inflammatory issues as single parenthood, the merit system in academic and business settings, gender privilege in the classroom, and crime.
