However, such antiblack fictions are sincerely held by many whites (see Chapter 7). The persistence of antiblack discrimination indicates how deeply myths of racial difference and inequality have become embedded in white thinking.

Aggressive white responses included a dozen cross-burnings and bricks thrown through the windows of black homes.
