       Multiple exposures. The evidence of things not easily 
       seen. 
520    "In this fiercely urgent book, Matthew Pratt Guterl 
       focuses on how and why we come to see race in very 
       particular ways. What does it mean to see someone as a 
       color? As racially mixed or ethnically ambiguous? What 
       history makes such things possible? Drawing creatively 
       from advertisements, YouTube videos, and everything in 
       between, Guterl redirects our understanding of racial 
       sight away from the dominant categories of color--away 
       from brown and yellow and black and white--and instead 
       insists that we confront the visual practices that make 
       those same categories seem so irrefutably important. 
       Zooming out for the bigger picture, Guterl illuminates the
       long history of the practice of seeing--and believing in--
       race, and reveals that our troublesome faith in the 
       details discerned by the discriminating glance is 
       widespread and very popular. In so doing, he upends the 
       possibility of a postracial society by revealing how 
       deeply race is embedded in our culture, with implications 
       that are often matters of life and death"--|cProvided by
