By Jared Sexton

In this well timed and penetrating research, Sexton pursues a critique of latest multiracialism, from the splintered political projects of the multiracial circulate to the tutorial box of multiracial reviews, to the melodramatic media declarations approximately “the browning of America.” He contests the rationales of colorblindness and multiracial exceptionalism and the merchandising of a repackaged relations values platform with a view to show that the genuine goal of multiracialism is the singularity of blackness as a social identification, a political organizing precept, and an item of wish. From this vantage, Sexton interrogates the trivialization of sexual violence below chattel slavery and the convoluted dating among racial and sexual politics within the new multiracial consciousness.


An unique and demanding intervention, Amalgamation Schemes posits that multiracialism stems from the conservative and reactionary forces made up our minds to undo the earnings of the fashionable civil rights circulate and dismantle radical black and feminist politics.
