美國埃默里大學非裔美國人研究教授、歷史學家卡蘿.安德森(Carol Anderson),於2014年美國發生白人員警射殺非裔青年的佛格森事件後,在《華盛頓郵報》上發表評論文章,引發熱烈迴響與討論。她認為此類事件並不是黑人對於警察的憤怒,而是白人的憤怒。她記錄美國反對非裔美國人勢力與行動的阻力,以及長期被忽略與壓抑的白人憤怒,如何導致當今種族分裂的現狀。 

美國自1865年起,每當非裔美國人的人權有所進展,白人便會採取行動反制,透過立法等看似高貴的程序,壓制非裔人士的勢力,將反對與憤怒隱藏在法律之下,以保護民主、財務責任或反詐欺之名,以精心策劃的反對行動表達白人的憤怒。作者追溯南北戰爭、1954年美國最高法院判決中止種族隔離的「布朗訴托皮卡教育局案」(Brown v. Board of Education)、2008年歐巴馬當選美國第一任非裔美國人總統等等重要歷史事件,並與白人的反動勢力作連結,為美國的種族對話提供重要的新維度。

From the Civil War to our combustible present, acclaimed historian Carol Anderson reframes our continuing conversation about race, chronicling the powerful forces opposed to black progress in America.

As Ferguson, Missouri, erupted in August 2014, and media commentators across the ideological spectrum referred to the angry response of African Americans as “black rage,” historian Carol Anderson wrote a remarkable op-ed in The Washington Post suggesting that this was, instead, "white rage at work. With so much attention on the flames," she argued, "everyone had ignored the kindling."

Since 1865 and the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances towards full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains. The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow; the Supreme Court’s landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South while taxpayer dollars financed segregated white private schools; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 triggered a coded but powerful response, the so-called Southern Strategy and the War on Drugs that disenfranchised millions of African Americans while propelling presidents Nixon and Reagan into the White House, and then the election of America’s first black President, led to the expression of white rage that has been as relentless as it has been brutal.

Carefully linking these and other historical flashpoints when social progress for African Americans was countered by deliberate and cleverly crafted opposition, Anderson pulls back the veil that has long covered actions made in the name of protecting democracy, fiscal responsibility, or protection against fraud, rendering visible the long lineage of white rage. Compelling and dramatic in the unimpeachable history it relates, White Rage will add an important new dimension to the national conversation about race in America.
