<I>Even the Janitor Is White addresses challenges faced by teacher educators who are committed to diversity education. The chapters in this volume invite readers to reflect on their own practice as teacher educators as well as consider ways in which that practice might be improved. <BR> More than forty percent of students in U.S. schools are of non-White ethnicity, yet the majority of teachers are White and middle class. Some teacher education students are resistant to conversations about race or ethnicity in the college classroom, while teacher educators may avoid initiating dialogues about race or ethnicity. U.S. teacher education programs, however, are charged with preparing culturally competent teachers. Educational experts agree teacher educators must direct special attention toward consciousness-raising activities and instructional strategies to increase White educators' awareness of diverse populations, challenge stereotypes, and facilitate interactions between and among ethnic groups. Teacher education programs, pre-service teachers, and others interested in issues of diversity will benefit from this collection of classroom-tested strategies for increasing educators' awareness about diversity.

From the nineteenth century until today, the power brokers of Dallas have always portrayed their city as a progressive, pro-business, racially harmonious community that has avoided the racial, ethnic, and class strife that roiled other Southern cities. But does this image of Dallas match the historical reality? In this book, Michael Phillips delves deeply into Dallas's racial and religious past and uncovers a complicated history of resistance, collaboration, and assimilation between the city's African American, Mexican American, and Jewish communities and its white power elite. Exploring more than 150 years of Dallas history, Phillips reveals how white business leaders created both a white racial identity and a Southwestern regional identity that excluded African Americans from power and required Mexican Americans and Jews to adopt Anglo-Saxon norms to achieve what limited positions of power they held. He also demonstrates how the concept of whiteness kept these groups from allying with each other, and with working- and middle-class whites, to build a greater power base and end elite control of the city. Comparing the Dallas racial experience with that of Houston and Atlanta, Phillips identifies how Dallas fits into regional patterns of race relations and illuminates the unique forces that have kept its racial history hidden until the publication of this book.

WHITE MALE JANITOR: The Whistlebroom File is a unique work of fiction. In it such controversial topics as the contribution of African blacks to slavery, suicidal survivalists, and un-Christlike Christians are tackled with honesty, insight, and irrepressible humor. Its uniqueness lies in the readiness of the main character, Pandolfo Whistlebroom, a philosopher-janitor from Flint, Michigan, to criticize extremists from all cultures and belief systems, including his own. As he himself admits, Im a bystander, yes, innocent, no. But WHITE MALE JANITOR is more than a commentary on society and its ills. It is an entertaining and satisfying story. Barbara, a black liberal journalism professor, is writing a book about Pandolfo and her partner, Alice, a black Republican business professor, often argues with her about the ideas in it. The two also quarrel about their relationship, which is sometimes hilariously tumultuous, but always real. After a misunderstanding on an airplane, Barbara, Pandolfo, and eventually Alice become terror suspects. There follows a mysterious disappearance, which changes the lives of the two women dramatically. As Volume I of WHITE MALE JANITOR closes, they are both in the clutches of an unknown, chilling force.
