Book Chapter
The article focuses on the queer character of racial politics and violence in the United States. It cites the crisis of white masculinity during the final decade of the nineteenth century. Certain factors like shifts in the economy, disappearance of romantic friendship and racialization of a defeated manhood contributed to the feeling of uncertainty among white men. It argues that heterosexual men tend to be misogynistic, homophobic and racialized.
