7. Racist identities: ambivalence, contradiction, and commitment Abstract People are often accused of using racialized language but this is not the same as being called a racist. What constitutes an identity? An individual or group identity is only partly a matter of self-identification. Identities are also assigned by others. They imply and rely on the recognition of differences. ‘Racist identities: ambivalence, contradiction, and commitment’ questions the ambivalence of racialized language, the factors that create an identity, and the contradictions involved in anti-racists claims that prejudice is a product of ignorance and irrationality.

5. People, objects, and identity Abstract ‘People, objects, and identity’ considers how the home is a major focus in the construction of self-identity and how people carve out home space even within institutions. It suggests that a home is always a house plus many other ingredients, but a house is a home minus many elements. These elements include the people who matter to us and the objects we choose to keep in our homes. The links between home, objects, and personal identity are dramatically illustrated by two stories focusing on the Holocaust. They demonstrate that destroying homes and their occupants’

Conclusions: prospects for a post-racial future Abstract The Conclusion argues that conflicts between geo-cultural groups have been a perennial part of human history, and a combination of ethnic, linguistic, and religious boundaries has been crucial in creating prejudice and hostility. Each group, bound by geography and culture, has proved to be prone to see the world and ‘strangers’ through its own ethnocentric frame.
