Pressestimmen

Protecting Our Own is a compelling analysis of an all too familiar but problematic response on the part of African Americans to persistent racial inequalities. Russell Brown dissects the practice of "Black protectionism," reveals both its flaws and strengths, and offers a useful remedy. Using critical race theory, she suggests how black communities could respond differently to alleged criminal or unethical behavior, especially on the part of high profile black men. Her carefully crafted strategy would put in motion protections for a broader range of Blacks, especially non celebrities and women, and halt the practice of [blanket] race loyalty by any means necessary. -- Beverly Guy Sheftall, Coauthor (with Johnnetta Betsch Cole) of Gender Talk: The Struggle for Women's Equality in African American Communities Protecting Our Own makes a substantial contribution to the understanding of the rather mysterious phenomena of African American support for, and embarrassment with, high profile African Americans accused of crime or wrong doing. It provides a freshperspective on the specific topic as well as insight into the general area of racial group solidarity. The discussion is intellectually provocative and stimulating... -- Randolph N. Stone, University of Chicago Why do we rise up to defend O.J., a womanizer of White women, and not get group mad about the systematic job bias against Blacks under seemingly neutral racial policies that have a devastating impact on Black employment? Russell-Brown examines and critiques this illogical and unproductive phenomenon that she calls 'Black protectionism.' -- Derrick Bell, Harvard Law School Russell-Brown brings a novel approach to race theory discourse. Recommended. CHOICE ...I believe students of Western politics and political theory will benefit immensely from Russell-Brown's use of critical race theory and cost-benefit analysis. -- Louis Wright, Howard University The Journal of African American History Provocative, intelligent, surprising, insightful and rich with cultural references and wry humor, Russell-Brown's analysis is potent and important food for thought. -- Jill Nelson, author, Finding Martha's Vineyard Protecting Our Own makes a substantial contribution to the understanding of the rather mysterious phenomena of African American support for, and embarrassment with, high profile African Americans accused of crime or wrong doing. It provides a fresh perspective on the specific topic as well as insight into the general area of racial group solidarity. The discussion is intellectually provocative and stimulating. -- Randolph N. Stone, University of Chicago
