CARDOSO, Lourenço. Acritical and Critical Whiteness: a racial supremacy and the antiracist white. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2010, vol.8, n.1, pp. 607-630. ISSN 1692-715X.
In the Brazilian and international academic research on whiteness usually reduces the whiteness critical, not investigating the whiteness uncritical. The whiteness criticism refers to the individual or group of whites who disapprove publicly racism. The uncritical whiteness refers to a person or group that argues in favor of white racial superiority. This article takes care to point out the importance of distinguishing the whiteness critical and whiteness uncritical. Because what may appear to be only a "simple distinction" in fact can lead us to look more carefully on the growth and strengthening of groups of neo-Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan. White individuals and groups that represent two significant examples of the expression of whiteness uncritical.
