  Imagining race and nation in multiculturalist America
Titel: Imagining race and nation in multiculturalist America
Auteur: Kim, Claire Jean
Verschenen in: Ethnic and racial studies
Paginering: Jaargang 27 (2004) nr. 6 pagina's 987-1005
Jaar: 2004-11
Inhoud: Post-1965 demographic changes in the United States [US] have brought blacks, Latinos, and Asian Americans into direct conflict, raising the question of how and whether law and public policy should attempt to adjudicate conflicts among racialized minority groups. I argue in this article that for the past few decades, national political leaders in the US have promoted an official multiculturalist discourse that actually discourages Americans from naming and addressing these intergroup tensions. This discourse superficially reimagines race and nation - by moving from a biracial, black-white focus to a formal acknowledgment of multiracial difference - while refusing to acknowledge the complex interminority inequalities and antagonisms generated by this new diversity. How might we refocus national attention on the serious interminority conflicts and racial justice struggles unfolding around us? I consider resurrecting the traditional notion of racial hierarchy as a counter-narrative to official multiculturalist discourse before arguing instead for one which involves a more complex notion of “racial positionality”.
