Whitewashing "The Strip": The Construction of Whiteness in Las Vegas

Document Type



What does it mean to be white in today's society? Is whiteness an ethnicity? White Reign tackles questions like these by examining whiteness as a cultural concept that our society has created and exposing the systems that teach us how we think about race, including schools, media, and even cyberspace. These essays examine the construction of white identity and the possibility of reshaping whiteness in a progressive, nonracist manner, presenting a culture of whiteness that can be employed by educators, parents, and citizens concerned with racial justice.
