Summary
"White Men on Campus is a critical examination of the role of race on campus, especially among white men, in an effort to unveil the frequently unconscious habits of racism found within this group of students. Within the context of Trump's presidential win in the November 2016 election, and in the wake of various racial incidents on American college campuses, this book offers the views, experiences, and development of white male undergraduates at two universities with regard to race. In doing so, it details many of the contours of contemporary, systemic racism, while continually engaging the possibility of white students to engage in anti-racist actions. Cabrera moves beyond the "few bad apples" frame of contemporary racism explanation, and explores the structures, policies, ideologies, and experiences that allow racism to flourish. Ultimately, White Men on Campus takes seriously the narratives of white men on the subject of race, in particular how these views are formed. It calls upon institutions of higher education to be sites of social transformation instead of reinforcing systemic racism, while concurrently creating a platform to engage and challenge the public discourse of post-racialism"--
