This chapter concludes that the antiracism movement, which encompasses racial liberalism, liberal multiculturalism, and neoliberal multiculturalism, changes national discourses about culture, law, politics, history, and economy. The movement also structures the historical global capitalist development of racial equality by dissimulating it as fair, beneficial, or socially progressive. Literary scholarship can participate in a resurgence of antiracist materialism. After World War II, literary studies established the dominant meaning and significance of race in the United States. Analyses of official antiracism movements will contribute to the ongoing work of constituting an antiracist materialism of neoliberal times by recapturing how antiracism movements can be politically mobilized to reveal the perniciousness racial capitalism.

Keywords:   antiracism movement, racial liberalism, liberal multiculturalism, neoliberal multiculturalism
