The Abolition of White Democracy
Joel Olson, 2004
Offers a new way of understanding the tortured relationship between race and democracy in the United States.
Joel Olson contends that, given the history of slavery and segregation in the United States, American citizenship is a form of racial privilege in which whites are equal to each other but superior to everyone else. To break this pattern, Olson suggests an “abolitionist-democratic” political theory that makes the fight against racial discrimination a prerequisite for expanding democratic participation.
