A New York Times bestseller: “This terrific new book . . . [explores] the ‘notion of whiteness,’ an idea as dangerous as it is seductive.”—Boston Globe Telling perhaps the most important forgotten story in American history, eminent historian Nell Irvin Painter guides us through more than two thousand years of Western civilization, illuminating not only the invention of race but also the frequent praise of “whiteness” for economic, scientific, and political ends. A story filled with towering historical figures, The History of White People closes a huge gap in literature that has long focused on the non-white and forcefully reminds us that the concept of “race” is an all-too-human invention whose meaning, importance, and reality have changed as it has been driven by a long and rich history of events.

When Joe Biden attempted to compliment Barack Obama by calling him “clean and articulate,” he unwittingly tapped into one of the most destructive racial stereotypes in American history. This book tells the history of the corrosive idea that whites are clean and those who are not white are dirty. From the age of Thomas Jefferson to the Memphis Public Workers strike of 1968 through the present day, ideas about race and waste have shaped where people have lived, where people have worked, and how American society’s wastes have been managed. Clean and White offers a history of environmental racism in the United States focusing on constructions of race and hygiene. In the wake of the civil war, as the nation encountered emancipation, mass immigration, and the growth of an urbanized society, Americans began to conflate the ideas of race and waste. Certain immigrant groups took on waste management labor, such as Jews and scrap metal recycling, fostering connections between the socially marginalized and refuse. Ethnic “purity” was tied to pure cleanliness, and hygiene became a central aspect of white identity. Carl A. Zimring here draws on historical evidence from statesmen, scholars, sanitarians, novelists, activists, advertisements, and the United States Census of Population to reveal changing constructions of environmental racism. The material consequences of these attitudes endured and expanded through the twentieth century, shaping waste management systems and environmental inequalities that endure into the twenty-first century. Today, the bigoted idea that non-whites are “dirty” remains deeply ingrained in the national psyche, continuing to shape social and environmental inequalities in the age of Obama.

Who are the Caucasian or White People? The Lord of the Abrahamic religions successfully divided the Caucasians into American, Canadian, British, German, French, Kurdish, Russian and others. This book is using the terminology of the Caucasians for the original peoples from India to Europe, and from Egypt to Mongolia and includes the Americans and Australians as whites from across the globe. The terminology "Caucasian and White" are used to denote the original people throughout the Asian steppes, south throughout the sub-continent of today's India and throughout the Middle East that was once the Median Empire as well as Egypt and the Levant. These original people were members of the religion of Mithraism begun more than 12,000 years ago. The Aryan (Zoroastrian) religion was established by the Prophet Zarathustra (Zoroaster) 7600 years ago to reform the ancient Mithraism religion. Most of the Caucasian peoples became members of the Aryan religion, while many of the Europeans remain as members of Mithraism. The Lord Jesus of Nazareth established Christianity more than 2000 years ago. The Lord of Judaism used the Roman Empire to kill Jesus of Nazareth and then after three centuries, they changed his original religion at the Council of Nicea into the new so-called Christianity meaning for it to be used to eliminate Mithraism in its various forms throughout Europe. The Lord of Judaism established Islam to also act to eliminate the Aryan religion also.

Birth of a White Nation is a fascinating new book on race in America that begins with an exploration of the moment in time when "white people,” as a separate and distinct group of humanity, were invented through legislation and the enactment of laws. The book provides a thorough examination of the underlying reasons as well as the ways in which “white people” were created. It also explains how the creation of this distinction divided laborers and ultimately served the interests of the elite. The book goes on to examine how foundational law and policy in the U.S. were used to institutionalize the practice of “white people” holding positions of power. Finally, the book demonstrates how the social construction and legal enactment of “white people” has ultimately compromised the humanity of those so labeled.
