AbstractTwo-Faced Racism is a reference to a 2007 book published by sociologists Leslie H. Picca and Joe R. Feagin. Using journals collected by 626 white college students across the United States, the authors examine whites' private conversations and conclude that racism is thriving in white-only social networks. The white students' interactions were “two-faced,” or remarkably different if they were in the company of people of color (“frontstage”) compared to only among other whites (“backstage”).
