Abstract

This paper discusses some of the processes and consequences of newer racisms in contemporary society, based on Dr Tina Patel's paper. In arguing that we have recently witnessed a surge in the popularity of racism (under which I also include Islamophobia and xeno-phobia), the paper argues that racist ideology continues to thrive despite claims to a post-race state. Post-race racism, this paper argues, has drawn on simmering post-colonial fears, about the dangerous ‘black’ body, and harnessed more recent public anxieties around immigration and security, in order to justify and excuse racially defined practices. This is especially evident within those institutions charged with crime-prevention work.
