The author returned to California after graduating from a college in New England and subsequently obtained two more graduate degrees in California. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in sociology. The events described in this book played a critical role in his determination to explore sociology. He now lives in Silicon Valley. At one point in our history, racism was thought to be a quintessential male sport, with its female spectators sitting sympathetically on the sidelines. Yet how far can we exculpate the cheerleaders for their indifference and for their lack of active anti-racist attitudes? In fact, where the perception of non- violence and muted inability to propagate change exist, an alternate form of intrinsic racism is allowed to flourish. As the seemingly violent players are hurdled off the field and active racism becomes no longer acceptable, what becomes of the silent and complicit supporters? Passive racism is thus synonymous with feminine racism. Passive or feminine racism involves manipulation rather than aggression, strategy rather than violence. It always operates within the well-established social parameters to tear someone away from an institution, to hamper the advancement of someone's career within a company, or to make finding or maintaining affordable housing virtually impossible. This book tells a story of true feminine racism in contemporary America.
