Civil Racism

Lynn Mie Itagaki

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter discusses the specific role the media plays in constructing race and determining the parameters of “civil” racial discourse. Contesting the racist practices of racial civility, Yamashita depicts the alternative practices of media consumption in which the less powerful—the homeless, people of color, immigrants--resist the demands of the more powerful.

Keywords:   Karen Tei Yamashita, media consumption, alternative practices, media resistance, media hegemony
