Abstract

This essay explores the structural inadequacy of law to deliver a post-white society. De-racination of our law has instead led to a re-entrenchment of whiteness and material white privilege in the name of post-racialism. The racial-industrial complex is both masked and benefited by the discourse of post-racialism.

Keywords: white privilege, post-racialism, whiteness, critical racial theory, de-racination
