Another text which I would recommend is "The Wages of Whiteness." Written by David R. Roediger Ph.D. It speaks directly on the development of the concept of "white" and how it was used to create distance between oppressed peoples through the "wage" or "reward" of privilege real and imagined. The author starts from his roots as an Irish American and branches out. An interesting read amongst many.
