In large part this effort stemmed from his passion to restrict the scope of biblical
religion to the adamic race, to put the world right on the racial truths of “scriptures
and of anthropology and archaeology,” and to explain the continued existence of
... The purpose was to inject into his readers a sense ofcrisis that a day of racial
reckoning was imminent, when adamic whites would have to relocate to
ethnically pure geographical zones, prepare for racial war, and take steps to

Black people now outnumbered Europeans by twenty to one; black and mixed-
race by thirty to one. In the House of Assembly, 400,000 were governed by a 47-
man planter oligarchy chosen by fewer than 2,000 electors. If voting did nothing
for the majority, it seemed a revolution would, and as the day of racial reckoning
dawned, abolitionist dreams of a peaceful, industrious island faded. The old
biblical belief that Africans and whites were members of one family lost ground to

... which of course includes thinking about whiteness, than through the
extraordinary figure of Du Bois? Even in the simple reluctance to repeat his
celebrated phrase yet once more, the epigraph evokes a problem about citation (
and re-citation) and therefore gets one thinking from the start about repetition and
time as well as category. The epigraph presents what I want to argue is an
appropriately nonsynchronistic form of racial reckoning between Du Bois's
historical moment and ours, ...

By this shortsighted racial reckoning, in which black ideals of self-help respond to
and reinforce the majority society's hostility to federal enforcement of civil rights,
integration, antipoverty programs, and the expansion of the black middle class
have produced a culture of poverty, ending a golden age of supposedly healthy
black communities during the era of de jure segregation. There is a clear
relationship between post-civil rights neoliberal claims of a color-blind society
and the ...

The image of Reconstruction as black domination, radical ideology taken too far,
would become one of the deepest strains of American historical consciousness in
the next generation. Walt Whitmans never-ending quest to comprehend the
convulsiveness of the Civil War can serve as a mirror of the larger culture's
tendencies toward a reconciliation that would postpone, or evade altogether, its
racial reckoning. Whitman never absorbed the anti-Southern political feeling of
the prewar ...

... reputed to be," or "was known to be" of a certain race suggest the degree to
which miscegenation and passing existed on the remote fringes of northern New
Spain, profoundly complicating racial reckoning. The nobility who settled New
Spain's northern reaches thought of mestizos as despicable because of their
illegitimate birth, or so they claimed. On this point they were probably right. For
throughout the eighteenth century high levels of illegitimacy occurred in Hispanic
settlements ...

race and diversity. Let's dare to push toward some more honest racial reckoning

that 'nearer and nearer we see approaching the day when vast populations of the
East will assert their claim to meet on terms of equality the nations of the West'
was not controversial.23 Other delegates were no less certain that the time of
racial reckoning was approaching. The existence of a substantial body of
