New Article: “Anticipating White Futures: The Ends-Based Orientation of White Thinking” by Jennifer Mueller and DyAnna K. Washington @sociologylens https://doi.org/10.1002/symb.563 #sssi #sociology #race

Symbolic Interaction has published a new article entitled “Anticipating White Futures: The Ends-based Orientation of White Thinking”. In their article, Jennifer Mueller and DyAnna K. Washington use Mueller’s Theory of Racial Ignorance to explore how racial cognition abides by ends-based orientation – “one whereby white people coordinate “anticipated futures” to maintain the literal and psychic spoils of racism”. The article reveals “how students’ practical takeaways betray this ends-based orientation, which remains resilient amidst critical learning”.
