THE NEW RACISM FOR THE 21ST CENTURY:
THE NEW RACISM FOR THE 21ST CENTURY: "Tacit Racism" A Psycho-social Theory."-by Leon Benson (2005-2011)
"Any candid obsserver of American racial history must acknowledge that racism is highly adaptable."-Michelle Alexander
While i languished w/in a security housing unit (SHU) solitary cell for 9 yrs& 4 months, i was able to objectively analyze society. My analysis always begin from my direct experiences then move outwardly. In this realism of approach to social science, i developed the theory of "tacit racism."
Here is an excerpt from my book THE WOMB OF THE BEAST: RADICAL PRISON GESTATION (not published):
"i wouldnt say that most of these white guards were out right racist, but most embraced moderate-to-boaderline extreme right wing (REPUBLICAN) ideologies; which has been historically xenophobic & racist toward people of color. At worst, i would describe most white guards in the SHU as tacitracist, which i define: (1)Sociology: the understood racism or enthnocentrism amongst majority groups or those that hold socio-political power in any society or situation, toward outside groups w/o verbal or direct statement being made. (2)Psychology: a subconscious pathological behavior of cultural groups that maneuver to maintain or gain superior position in socio-relationships over other groups while denying to be doing such. (3)Ethnomethodology: a commonsense (tacit) knowledge of all racial groups, in which members draw from implicit rules of how to carry on around outsiders."
