Race and Whiteness

(p.200) 6 Race and Whiteness
Transnational Radicalism and the Connected Lives of Tom Mann and Robert Samuel Ross

Neville Kirk

Liverpool University Press

This chapter investigates Mann’s and Ross’s attitudes towards race, class and gender. The aim is to shed new light upon the widely debated and topical issues of racism, whiteness and anti-racism. This is done by means of an investigation of the interplay between race and class, division and solidarity, inclusion and exclusion and internationalism and national ‘exceptions’ and ‘peculiarities’. The chapter contrasts the exclusionary, nationally-rooted whiteness of Ross (despite his class-based socialist internationalism) with the inclusive, class-based anti-racism of Mann. It offers the conclusion that whiteness was probably more variable, contingent and contested than suggested in most of the recent and current literature. It also demonstrates that ‘whiteness’ and ‘race’ were highly gendered categories.
