This lecture by Jeffrey B. Perry is based on the pioneering 2-volume work of historian Theodore W. Allen.

Theodore W. Allen's tome presents a full-scale challenge to what Allen refers to as "The Great White Assumption" - "the unquestioning, indeed unthinking acceptance of the 'white' identity of European-Americans of all classes as a natural attribute rather than a social construct." Allen's thesis -- that the "white race" was invented in late 17-early 18th century Virginia and Maryland as a RULING CLASS SOCIAL CONTROL FORMATION in response to LABOR SOLIDARITY -- contains the root of a new and radical approach to United States history, one that challenges master narratives taught in the media and in schools, colleges, and universities. With its equalitarian motif and emphasis on class struggle, it speaks to people today who strive for change worldwide.

On 6-21-2013 at 11:00am EDT, after the original MP3 had been downloaded 35 times, we replaced it. At Perry's request and with his approval, four mis-spoken phrases were changed.

A somewhat related talk by Richard Rodriguez was given at Boston College as keynote to BC’s recent Sesquicentennial Symposium “Migration, Past Present and Future,” organized by BC’s Center for Human Rights and International Justice. BC has a huge Irish presence. Here’s an excerpt from Rodriguez’s keynote: “The Irish were not white when they came to America. They had to earn the designation." He went on to suggest reading Noel Ignatiev’s book How the Irish Became White (1995). To see or hear that talk, go to bc.edu/bcm and click on the Richard Rodriguez entry on the left.
