Toxic Diversity deals an invigorating view of race, gender, and legislations in the United States. interpreting the paintings of preeminent felony students similar to Patricia Williams, Derrick Bell, Lani Guinier, and Richard Delgado, Dan Subotnik argues that race and gender theorists poison our social and highbrow surroundings through nearly intentionally misinterpreting racial interplay and information and turning white men into victimizers. faraway from energizing ladies and minorities, Subotnik concludes, theorists divert their energies from imposing America's social justice agenda.
Insisting, within the phrases of James Baldwin, that “not every thing that's confronted will be replaced, yet not anything may be replaced till it truly is faced,” and that considerate american citizens despite race and gender can deal with frank conversations approximately tricky subject matters, Subotnik’s critique of race and gender thought pulls no punches because it confronts such inflammatory concerns as unmarried parenthood, the advantage procedure in educational and company settings, gender privilege within the school room, and crime.
