    I'm pretty familiar with the notions and largely agree with the analysis of racism as exertion of power.  Indeed, I am far more familiar with these than you realize. That is precisely why I can spot the massive error in your taking it a couple steps beyond what is warranted.   However you are too wedded to your project to honestly examine your assumptions and theoretical bases.   That lack of willingness marks you as an ideologue rather than a scholar I have had debates with scientific racists too that ran much along these same lines

        Give me your list of where you'd like to start, and we will go from there.  MInd you, I suspect that I'll find the same problems in those sources, since it seems there is quite a theorectical project devoted to this project. INdeed, there's entire denial and covering cottage industry it seems.

          You threw down the gauntlet. If you have this great familiarity with a whole literature, show me something. Make a claim on how I have erred. You love to appear when I post on this and other topics. I have repeatedly listed and cited materials in this thread, post, and others. Offer something up. Are you afraid to reveal that you are a pretender?

          "That is precisely why I can spot the massive error in your taking it a couple steps beyond what is warranted.   "

          What is this massive error?

          Are you a pro or a wikipedia script kitty?
