Joe R. Feagin: The Social Science Voice of Systemic Racism Theory
This chapter has two goals: (1) to bear witness to Joe R. Feagin’s influence on the author’s own scholarship and intellectual development as a radical social scientist and anti-racist, and (2) to place his contributions to systemic racism theory in their sociohistorical context. To make clear what the author considers to be both the strengths and weaknesses of Feagin’s work, he deploys as analytical guideposts a set of linguistically-centered racism denial practices that locate his scholarship and its influence within the response of U.S. social science to the nation’s changing race relations.
