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: Abstract
This ethnographic study analyzes Japanese perceptions of racial otherness, with a focus on Japanese perceptions of White Westerners. Despite the country’s pronounced lack of racially non-Japanese and non-Asians, Japan is arguably one of the most “Westernized non-Western” societies in the world today. Under this presumption, this essay explores how Japanese introduced, interpreted, and incorporated images of White Westerners. The empirical study confirms that overly positive images and affirmations of White Westerners are a central theme in the Japanese imagination. In addition, the study suggests some complexities in Japanese people’s consumption of racial imaginations. These complexities include (1) how Japanese people use images of Whites when they see their own skin tone and other phenotypic features, (2) some of the psychological struggles that Japanese people experience when they actually associate themselves with White Westerners, and (3) a few antithetic perceptions that Japanese people have of the dominant racial ideology, an ideology that praises Whites.

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.

Abstract: Increasing immigration has long caused anxiety for many White Americans. This debate about who can be American often plays out at the local level in towns such as Farmingville, NY whose struggle is represented in the documentary, Farmingville. Using a theoretical lens of Whiteness, this paper argues that town residents are represented as constructing and maintaining symbolic White spaces and boundaries constitutive ofAmerican identity and that this leads to a physical disciplining of race.
