Race Makes Nation

(p.167) Conclusion
Waste of a White Skin

Tiffany Willoughby-Herard

University of California Press

The book closes with a succinct rendering of the relationship between race and nation by turning our attention to the global racial order and the significance of civilizing missions in propping up the exceptionalist and imperialist imaginary of white nations. Caught within national identities more often characterized by second-class citizenship and a lack of substantive racial equality, African Americans, in particular—but certainly not only that group—have a long history of participation in an ethical international foreign affairs.

Keywords:   segregationist philanthropy, international elite, American expansionism in Africa, exceptionalist white imaginary
