Abstract: What do white people do when race is on the table? White folks are regularly engaged in seemingly contradictory behavior (e.g., claiming they value diversity as they make choices that reinforce segregation). They remain invested in seeing themselves as “good people” even as they either participate in or remain disconnected from racial injustice that exists not only afar but up close. In this talk, I will discuss how white people save face. What ideological, emotional and practical work do they do to explain, justify, and rationalize their actions and ideas in light of their many in inconsistencies.

Abstract: Sociologists have long been interested in explaining the overrepresentation of minorities in street crime. However, the role of race in explaining white collar crime has been neglected. We argue that changes in definitions of “culture” create a new understanding of the role of culture in crime that is compatible with understanding how race affects the development of a culture conducive to white collar crime. We propose that social isolation among whites, particularly when combined with financial advantage, blocks the development of empathy towards outgroups and increases feelings of individual entitlement. We argue that this contributes to cultural frames in which white collar crime is “less than fervently condemned.” We argue that whiteness plays a role that is independent of socio-economic status.
