An introduction to a series of essays about racism and whiteness in the U.S. Included are information on anthropology's contribution to critical whiteness studies, the complexity by which whiteness in its various manifestations intersects with other identity formations, the continued strength of anthropological sensibilities in relation to the interrogation of interpretive repertoires of social life and their entanglement with rhetoric/realities of race, and a critique of racism in the U.S.
