Racial Formation in the Twenty-First Century

This chapter examines the interrelationships among indigeneity, settler colonialism, and white supremacy within the context of Michael Omi and Howard Winant's concept of the racial state. It argues that insufficient exchange between ethnic studies and Native studies prevents us from imagining an alternative to the racial state, and especially the development of a decolonization framework. It explains how the lack of attention to settler colonialism hinders the analysis of race and white supremacy developed by scholars who focus on race and racial formation. It also challenges the manner in which ethnic studies has formulated the study of race relations and how people-of-color organizing within the United States has formulated models for racial solidarity. Finally, it considers emerging intellectual and political projects that point to new directions in addressing the intersecting logics of white supremacy and settler colonialism.

Keywords:   indigeneity, settler colonialism, white supremacy, racial state, ethnic studies, Native studies, decolonization, race, racial formation, race relations
