Praise

“Feagin and Sikes . . . effectively drive home the point that ‘mere’ slights, racist jokes, common stereotyping—the myriad minor acts of prejudice and discrimination to which blacks are subjected even when separated by days or weeks—can gradually leave a sediment of bitterness and despair in the souls of black folk that makes normal interaction with whites very difficult.”
The Texas Observer

“[Living with Racism] offers ample proof to refute those who contend racism is a thing of the past for African Americans who have made it. I highly recommend this book to Black Americans seeking affirmation, and to every White person who has ever wondered what Blacks are complaining about.”
—Alvin F. Poussaint, M.D., Harvard Medical School

“Joe Feagin and Melvin Sikes have rendered a true sense of the texture of Black middle class life. Unlike people crippled by social science disease, they have been able to tell it like it feels.”
—Roger Wilkins, author of Jefferson’s Pillow: The Founding Fathers and the Dilemma of Black Patriotism

“Some optimists may delude themselves into thinking questions of class have all but obliterated questions of race in American society, but Joe Feagin and Mel Sikes show through their exhaustive interviews with upwardly mobile Black Americans, how racism in its more covert forms follows African-Americans up the ladder of success. The resulting portrait reveals parallel realities, one perceived by whites, the other lived every day by Blacks. Feagin and Sikes take us a giant step toward bridging the widening canyon walls of America’s great racial divide.”
—Clarence Page, syndicated columnist for the Chicago Tribune
